Poetry lesson based on the growing pains of a teenager from the point of view of an adult observer.
Uses Kuhn’s scientific paradigm of thesis-antithesis-synthesis to model alternative interpretations for students. Compelling visuals included as well.
Included is a complete PowerPoint, link to a reading, and a complete worksheet with a scaffolded paragraph. Excellent as a one-off lesson or to extend the study of poetry for KS3 and KS4 students.
Low resolution version of the guided literary analysis flowchart with access to some of the sections. See www.thequillguy.com for the full version with access to all facets and resource of empowering literary analysis for students.
When you want students to truly respond to marking, you need to give them. Often after such a homework, they will have a relatively independent task of consolidation while I interview each of them on their work over past term.
This sheet is an ideal way for them to focus on an aspect/area of a larger language/learning framework until the next interview lesson.
This works particularly well with other resources to support this (the literacy mats and the flow-chart of literary analysis).
Enjoy! Easily editable and purposefully smaller than A4 to fit into an exercise book.
