KS3 Poetry: 'After the Titanic'

KS3 Poetry: 'After the Titanic'

A lesson on the poem 'After the Titanic' by the Northern Irish poet Derek Mahon, in which pupils engage in active, collaborative close reading and language analysis through 'Home Group/Expert Group' activities. Presentation is split into 2 PowerPoints, since the first includes a video and is larger. I have also removed the video and made the presentation into a pdf, if that is an easier format to work with. The handout is for printing, cutting, and distributing to the groups.

Homer's Odyssey Study Map: Leadership

Homer's Odyssey Study Map: Leadership

A comprehensive study map in two parts, addressing the statement that Odysseus's men all die because of his poor leadership skills. Based upon a past-paper mark scheme, I look at the argument from both sides, covering books 9 - 12. These study maps can be completed by pupils individually as revision. I would recommend spending class time letting pupils gather their responses in pairs or groups at first, and then chair a whole-class discussion based upon my completed versions, included here as teacher's answers. Pupils can then produce a final version of the completed study map for their reference.

Unseen Poetry

Unseen Poetry

A set of poems to use as possible practice pieces for unseen poetry, and a guide to aid pupils in approaching unseen poems. Designed for GCSE, but I have also used for top-set KS3 pupils, and used the poem selection to widen A-level pupils' experience of poetry.
