Part completed grid identifying how each poem links to a theme.
Pupils should complete by adding evidence or references summing up how the poem links to the theme.
This leads nicely onto planning comparative essays.
A challenging revision clock created for Y11.
Pupils identify each of the pairs of poems, then link each poem to the theme listed in 5 minutes.
To give pupils confidence, I allowed them to work in groups and use their poetry anthologies.
Introduction to descriptive writing using language from Owen’s Dulce et Decorum Est and Isaac Rosenberg’s “Break of Day in The Trenches” as stimulus.
Used for cover, but can be adapted to look at both poems in their correct form to analyse and discuss more closely.
2 lessons planned leading up to an AQA GCSE style assessment task for Y8.
Assessment focus stems from the contrast between the characters of Michael and Mina in Skellig and focuses on the home school / school debate.
This lesson leads nicely on on from the poetry revision clock lesson.
Designed to outline how pupils should approach a poetry exam response.
Also gives pupils an explicit way they can prepare and revise for the final exam.
