  • 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.

OCR Lit (first teaching Sept 2011): Edward Thomas Notes & Worksheets w/audio

If students internalised the contents of this resource, they would be well on their way to a top grade at A Level. A Baiden, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

A comprehensive guide to all 15 Edward Thomas set poems for OCR English Literature. The resource is perfect to use as handouts for students in class, as a basis for a Scheme of Work or to support independent study.

  1. Support students’ comprehension and further analysis of the poems with clear and detailed commentaries on: themes and ideas, language and imagery, form and structure, context, and third-party critical comments.
  2. Encourage students to explore the selection at their own level with stimulating and engaging worksheets on each poem.
  3. Prepare students for their exams with copies of the poems for independent annotation, along with a brief biography, thematic and contextual notes, and OCR examination preparation.

Also includes a CD with high-quality readings of the poems performed by Philip Bird, Globe actor.

Poems covered:

  1. ‘March’
  2. ‘Old Man’
  3. ‘Tears’
  4. ‘But these things also’
  5. ‘Melancholy’
  6. ‘The Glory’
  7. ‘Words’
  8. ‘Aspens’
  1. ‘This is no case of petty right and wrong’
  2. ‘Rain’
  3. ‘No one so much as you’
  4. ‘The sun used to shine’
  5. ‘As the team’s head brass’
  6. ‘Gone, Gone Again (otherwise entitled Blenheim Oranges)’
  7. ‘Light’s Out’

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5107)
"An excellent and comprehensive resource for teaching a new poet. Perfect match for OCR English Literature study of poetry. I seldom resort to buying a resource like this but would certainly try ZigZag education again." P Foster, Vice Principal and Satisfied Customer
"Excellent. Thoughtful and inviting wider exploration but with a good level of detail and some useful tasks for students. I like the way students can take away the resources to explore further and to make the leap from opinion and analysis to criticism and close-reading. The use of critical opinions and relevant quotations from commentators on the poems is really nice, and a superb sprinboard for further work. It's responsive to the close-reading agenda of this paper and assists students in looking for key facets of form and language. Erudite but wearing its scholarship accessibly." B Coulthard, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"It is comprehensive and accessible. The accompanying tasks encourage independent thought and genuine discussion. You can really see the author's interactive approach to lessons coming through with the various tasks and she acknowledges that lessons can be enhanced through use of discussion, ICT and creativity. The critical comments and other quotations included from 3rd-party sources are excellent in encouraging students to read around the subject. The way the resource is written is pleasurable to read and the layout of the poems on the page make them excellent for annotating. If students internalised the contents of this resource, they would be well on their way to a top grade at A Level." A Baiden, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
