CIE Poetry Anthology, Songs of Ourselves - Annotated Booklet with Activities
mikib0202mikib0202

CIE Poetry Anthology, Songs of Ourselves - Annotated Booklet with Activities

(0)
This bundle contains thoroughly detailed annotations of each of the poems contained within one of the key CIE poetry anthologies; this includes suggested observations about structure and how one might sub-divide the poems into different topics. It also includes a student-friendly and ready-to-print anthology with good spacing for annotations and extra notes pages between each poem. Note that each poem comes with a suggested ‘starter’ or discussion activity (e.g. some with links to videos or picture stimulus with suggested answers / ideas). They are certainly best used as teacher resources to guide understanding of the poems and to give inspiration for different interpretations - as well as detailed analysis of key language and imagery - but it can also serve as a useful revision resource given directly to students at the end of the course. NOTE: These are only suggested interpretations and are, of course, subjective (I am a teacher and, as such, very much human!). THIS bundle includes Word Document version (if scrambled, ensure that margins are narrow!), PDF document and blank Word Version of Anthology. The bundle includes all of the following poems: ‘The City Planners’ – Atwood, Margaret ‘The Planners’ – Cheng, Boey Kim ‘The Man with Night Sweats’ – Gunn, Thom ‘Night Sweat’ – Lowell, Robert ‘Rain’ – Edward, Thomas ‘The Spirit is too blunt an instrument’ – Stevenson, Anne ‘Long Distance II’ – Harrison, Tony ‘Funeral Blues’ – Auden, W.H. ‘He Never Expected Much’ – Hardy, Thomas ‘The Telephone Call’ – Adcock, Fleur ‘A Consumer’s Report’ – Porter, Peter ‘Request to a Year’ – Wright, Judith ‘On Finding a Crushed Fly in a Book’ – Turner, Charles Tennyson ‘Ozymandias’ – Shelley, Percy Bysshe ‘Away, Melancholy’ – Smith, Stevie

Journey's End - Coping Mechanisms
mikib0202mikib0202

Journey's End - Coping Mechanisms

(0)
This is a simple, but effective, resource in getting the students to reflect on the various coping mechanisms employed by the characters in the play to deal with the trauma of the war and the horror of their experiences. This resource can be used when half way through the text or perhaps as a reflective task having completed the play as a whole. It could also form the foundation for an analytical essay and gives the students an opportunity to work on their ability to work through a text to find supporting ideas and evidence. I include a screen shot of the first slide / page as PDFs and ActivInspire Flipcharts do not always show up on pre-views.

Journey's End - Introduction Work

Journey's End - Introduction Work

(0)
This Journey’s End introductory work uses the well known accusation that soliders in WWI were ‘Lions led by donkeys’; using some images and a clip from Blackadder and verious discussion points, pupils are asked to reflect on the nature of the military leaders at the time. This resource can be used at the very start of the play for pp. 2-8 too (alongside the other resource in my shop if that is helpful).

Purple Hibiscus - Pupil Workbook

(0)
This ‘Purple Hibiscus’, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adihie, workbook is designed to be printed as a booklet / wire-bound handout to help students to organise their notes on the text and teachers with their planning. It is designed to help lesson planning - as it included starter activities for discussion or mind-mapping for each chapter as well - though its main focus is to help students to extract some of the most important quotations from the text (whilst also helping them to practise important passage-based skills along the way).

The Crucible - pp. 33-40 Podcast
mikib0202mikib0202

The Crucible - pp. 33-40 Podcast

(0)
This resource is a podcast on the Crucible Text (page numbers correspond to the Oxford University Press Version) that analyses the language in detail. It can be used by teachers to develop their own annotations and understanding of the text or set as homeworks for the pupils in order for them to annotate their own texts / write detailed notes. Some of the scenes selected in this series of podcasts are most suitable for homeworks as that leaves extended lesson time to focus on the most important scenes in the play. This podcast focuses on analysing the section where the narrative voice describes Hale (‘loaded down with half a dozen heavy books’) until his interrogation of Abigail about their dancing in the woods.
