Mametz Wood Poem Comparison (WJEC EDUQAS focused)

Mametz Wood Poem Comparison (WJEC EDUQAS focused)

A resource created for my low ability year 11s. I go through Mametz Wood in some detail, as a revision exercise, as they have annotated and been taught this poem before. The process of responding is broken down and I have used images to direct students to the 4 most horrific images in the poem. By scaffolding and modelling the first poem, the second poem is for students to have a go themselves. It worked really well!
