Blake - Songs of Innocence and Experience - Holy Thursday Poems - Lessons 6 and 7

Blake - Songs of Innocence and Experience - Holy Thursday Poems - Lessons 6 and 7

(0)
These two lessons are on the Holy Thursday poems from both Songs of Innocence and Experience. The first lesson focuses on developing skills in alternative readings of methods with consideration to writer’s purpose for Holy Thursday (Innocence). Students will use passages from the Bible to consider both a positive reading and a negative undertone to the poem and complete the handout using through a class 'Jigsaw.' The second lesson focuses on independent analysis skills that build on those from the previous lesson. After a reading of the poem and consideration of key context, students are divided into groups and can either 1) complete the handout looking at different aspect of the poem or 2) (how I taught it) be assigned a group and have speedy responses to the different categories, essentially working as a class to develop an analysis. My students really enjoyed these lesson and it led them into a formative essay task. Hope you enjoy as well.

This powerpoint is for lessons 4 and 5 in teaching Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience. It focuses on comparing The Nurses' Songs in both Innocence and Experience and considering the differences between the two collections. Students work in groups to consider three key ideas in both poems (the pastoral context, relationships between people, and the nature of authority) and are prompted by AO specific questions and information. There are additional 'notes' at the bottom of each slide for the teacher. The last slide in preview is a homework task.

This is a double lesson if you include reading and annotation. This lesson opens considering a key quote from the assigned reading and literary criticism from Lesson 4. It then builds on students knowledge of Iago and introduces the 'Vice' character in morality plays. After a class reading of Act I Scene III, students are then asked to reflect on other 'dramatic' methods in Act I that suggest evil (e.g. the night time setting and Iago speaking in the shadows) and Aristotle's Three Unities. In preparation for a mock exam, this lesson also includes a practice exam question and a review of how to structure a response.

They also reflect on the presentation of authority and are prompted to compare to poems I already taught (Introduction and The Shepherd).
