Full and extensive SOW for Poetry from other cultures. Includes introduction to each poem, annotated poems, analysis, comprehension questions, homework activities and diamond ranking activities. Can be taught across KS3 as builds up to an assessment on Island Man or Nothing's changed, or can be used as unseen poetry practice in KS4. There is an alternative assessment comparing 2 poems which can be used for very high ability pupils. The full SOW is aimed at middle ability pupils, but I have taught to both lower and higher and there are resources included for both.
