GCSE AQA Literature: ‘Power and Conflict’ poetry revision. A whole lesson activity with full answer key.

There is a list of all of the language techniques at the bottom of the table as well as the full list of poems, so that students can use this as a checklist.

Full lesson: comprehension, speech prompts for PSHE/English: Harry and Meghan 'stepping down.

(1)
Full lesson: comprehension article with questions, and detailed prompts for group speeches. Suitable for PSHE, English, or for a cover lesson. A great lesson based on the recent decision by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to ‘step down’ from senior royal duties. This can be used as part of a PSHE lesson, form time activity, or to fit into an English or History lesson. The first task is a five question comprehension activity, based on an article from the Evening Standard (answer key at end of document). The presentation prompts are split into four key figures: Prince Harry, Meghan, William and the Queen. They are designed to enable a group to work together to produce a 1-2 minute speech in reaction to the recent events, but with specific questions to adhere to, for example: You state that you wish to carry on with your support of charitable causes. Which three charities will you focus on supporting after you step down, and why?
