A KS3 mini scheme of work to introduce students to the concept of poetry and cultural identity. Will act as a good introduction to the AQA Poems from Other Cultures anthology.
The lessons cover a wide variety of poems and cultures, including two from the AQA GCSE anthology (Island Man by Grace Nichols and Blessing by Imtiaz Dharker). Even if your students will not go on to study these poems at KS4, this scheme of work will give them a secure understanding of how to analyse poetry of that standard.
This mini scheme of work is ideal for engaging students with poetry and includes analysis of pop songs (We'll Live and Die in These Towns by The Enemy) and rap, hip hop and grim lyrics. The lessons will give students a clear understanding of how to annotate, analyse and answer essay questions on poetry, as well as provoking a variety of personal and creative responses.
Each lesson includes at least a Do Now, differentiated outcomes, differentiated starter, main task and plenary.
