Unit of work for Edexcel Poetry - relationships (new spec)

Unit of work for Edexcel Poetry - relationships (new spec)

A complete unit of work fully resourced for the Edexcel Relationship cluster. I have included resources for the lessons (powerpoints and worksheets). It takes a clear route through the cluster of poems and has brought together powerpoints on the poems and context. I struggled trying to find a place where I could be guided through the poems and so did a lot of looking and have hopefully brought it all together here. I taught this last year for my current year 11's and was really successful so using it again.
