Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

A structured lesson for every poem including:

  • Initial worksheet to stimulate thought
  • Key learning based on teaching notes which outline the essential aspects of the poems
  • Follow-up worksheet to consolidate learning
  • Written and creative follow-up activities – perfect for homework

 

Makes poetry accessible!
‘The exercises encourage pupils to relate the devices used in poetry writing to the usage of language in everyday contexts. This could be a motivational factor for the pupils. The topics of the poems also reflect scenes and detail with which most pupils could empathise.''

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3834)
"It is well written and aimed at the audience." H Ward, Head fo English and Ind. Reveiwer
"The notes for the teacher are excellent. They are an in-depth analysis of each poem enabling teachers, especially non-specialists, to gain a detailed knowledge of each poem and teach the main features of the poem effectively." C Hele, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
'I loved the range and choice of poetry included here and I think this resource offers good grounding for Key Stage Four. Teachers' notes were comprehensive in terms of the poems themselves.' L Kontos, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'The writer has obviously put a lot of time and effort into providing a comprehensive resource on rhythm in poetry.' M Evans, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'It guides students through an appreciation of the poem in a very structured way. The tasks are achieveable and challenging at the same time. I particularly like the range of activities that students are invited to do. The teacher notes mean that even teacher inexperienced with poetry can feel confident about delivering the lesson content. Would I purchase this resource? Definitely. I think it's the kind of resource I'd use on a weekly/fortnightly basis through the year to get students used to annotating and analysing poems.' A Baiden, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'Overall I thought this was quite a comprehensive resource with a wide variety of activities. It was a useful guide for teachers as well to the poems chosen. I think that it is useful to enable students to explore poetry and see it from different points of view. I think it challenges students to think rather than encourages passive learning. It helps students get to grips with different approaches to poetry.' P Ault, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'I like the style of the text and the approach of the autthor when writing the resource. The link with language work and general culture is useful and appropriate, allowing pupils to easily link the literary world with reality. The teacher's notes are well structured and informed but not definitive which still allows the essential input of the teacher's own thoughts. nonetheless, there is sufficient information there for the less qualified teacher or even a cover/supply teacher to work from. The selection of poetry gives a reasonable overview of styles and different poets and the exercises encourage pupils to relate the devices used in poetry writing to the usage of language in everyday contexts. This could be a motivational factor for the pupils who look at this resource. The topics of the poems chosen also reflect scenes and detail with which most pupils could empathise.'
