annaefitz93annaefitz93

Poetry Scheme of Work: Clarke, Path, Duffy, Armitage, Williams

(0)
A slightly different, more interesting take on poetry! Designed for top-set year 9 - could be used for KS4. Poems: I wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke/ Daddy by Sylvia Plath/ Education For Leisure by Carol Ann Duffy/ Kid by Simon Armitage/ This is just to say... by William Carlos Williams Per poem, there is: A clip of the poet reading A set 'method' for initial, independent analysis Contextual information - lots of clips here! Questions to guide them in annotating A challenge section dedicated to applying a particular literary theory to the poem An assessment question with a peer/self-assessment table Also, there's a bit of theory at the beginning on poetry in general, a final assessment task, homework ideas dotted throughout, and an end-of-unit student voice/ review task. If you're after a video-clip-heavy lesson or two, the section on Education for Leisure has a small documentary on the Columbine Massacre. It also has a small section on applying theories about Existentialism to the poem which I think has quite a cool clip from Kill Bill to help explain it.
