All you need to teach a unit on unseen poetry. I have put this presentation together which includes AQA spec A type questions for the new syllabus Love Through the Ages Unseen Poetry. However, the tasks would work for any A Level unseen poetry work. I have tried to cover a range of literary periods and include brief bios on poets and key words to prompt students with each poem.
A collection of essay plans for the AQA Literature spec A paper 1 section C on Gatsby/Poetry anthology, covering obsession, unrequited love, the timeless nature of love, and barriers to love with some modelled paragraphs and a powerpoint showing how to address the AOs.
This presentation is a very useful revision of all the contexts of the GCE AQA spec A pre 1900 poetry anthology. Slides ask students to identify aspects of the following periods: Renaissance, Restoration, Romantics, Victorian, Decadent movement and then to consider how love is typically reflected in poetry from each of those eras. Suggested answers are given in subsequent slides. I encourages students to see the poems as part of a period or movement and prompts discuss about what is typical of the poems from each age.
This resource took a long time to put together but is worth it. The teacher chart covers all the literary periods (although I timed this from Middle English not Anglo Saxon). Each time period includes features of the era and an exemplar text/writer with a short critique on what they say about love/how it’s presented.
I have included a student copy which is a mixed up chart with no dates so that students can attempt to order the literary periods and the texts appropriately, discussing the features evolving over time.

This is a powerpoint designed to guide the students through the AOs and how to hit them. It is linked to the sample question paper, 'Compare how the authors of two texts you have studied present ideas about barriers to love.' It includes exemplar paragraphs, illustrating how the AOs are being tackled.
Exemplar answers. A worksheet for students to grade and a powerpoint with gradually improving paragraphs to show how detailed answers may be developed.
