Edexcel Conflict Poetry Revision Session (Approx 2 hours) GCSEExamQuestionPractice

This is a collection of resources that I used with my Y11 students during an Easter holiday revision session. I spent two hours delivering this lesson, however students were asked to finish many of them at home independently (therefore this could last several hours if used during lesson time). Conflict poetry pub quiz (containing true/false questions, context questions and fill in the blank quotation questions) Comparisons grid (students are given a plethora of exam questions and asked to identify comparable poems) Poetic Terminology task (students revise poetic terminology and definitions, then match terminology with examples from Conflict poems) Context and Form Bingo game (designed to help students remember key information regarding the form and structure of all 15 poems).
