Hi and welcome to The Briny English Teacher! I have been an English Language and English Literature educator since 2007 in both a UK and international setting. My experiences are as an English Teacher, Head of Department, Examiner, and Moderator across KS3, KS4 and KS5. My philosophy is that students should be responsible for developing their own learning and many of my resources adhere to that belief rather than spoon-feeding answers.

The lesson is part of a larger unit (coming soon) relating to the Section B Edexcel IGCSE Literature Exam (Anthology Poetry) though it can be used for any specification/unit.

This resource is to guide students on how to create One Pager responses to poetry texts. This can be used as a revision activity, to check a student’s understanding of the poem, or simply for fun! The resource includes a teacher guidance sheet, student instructions, and a page with some examples of completed One Pager tasks. I have used this for students in KS3, KS4 and KS4.
