This ten week scheme of work combines IGCSE Edexcel English Literature (4ET0 or 4ET1) and IGCSE CIE 0500 English First Language. The schemes first directs students through the Edexcel Poetry Anthology (If– , Prayer Before Birth, Half-past Two, Piano, Hide and Seek, Sonnet 116, La Belle Dame sans Merci, Poem at Thirty-Nine, War Photographer, The Tyger, My Last Duchess, Do not go gentle into that good night, Remember; then A Mother in a Refugee Camp, Telephone Conversation, Once Upon a Time for 4ET0 or add in Blessing, Search For My Tongue, Half Caste for 4ET1). Students are prompted to analyse the subject, style and structure of each poem through engaging activities, including creative writing and image matching, then using this as a basis to make connections between the poems. Students also develop strategies for tackling unseen poems by practising these strategies on anthology poems. After an assessment on their poetry, students then use their studies as the basis for coursework 2: writing to describe to fulfill the requirements of component 4 of CIE 0500 First Language English. Students select a poem they have studied and then write from a different characters point-of-view to describe their most memorable moments. Lesson-by-lesson PowerPoints are included in this pack of resources, as well as a number of printable resources, student examples and revision materials.
