What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4312)
"The resource shows the students how to take the sonnet apart, explore themes and poetic devices and develop their understanding of the impact on the reader." H Ward, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"Explains line by line each poem which helps weaker students to fully get to grips with the poems. The activities encourage students to work in teams making it a good guide to use in the classroom. There are also activities which get students to make notes in the form of tables, thus helping students to succinctly summarise key points about the poems, which is ideal for when the students are revising, for instance, page 18. The resource also gets students to think about the structure and form, for example, on page 29 students must think about the effect of rhyming couplets and its function within the poems. Thus, the students begin to think critically about the poems. Students are also prompted to think about literary devices, such as extended metaphor and similes. This resource is great for students studying for the OCR exam board." K McCord, Private Tutor and Ind. Reviewer
