W Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience A Level Mind Maps with Activities

A fabulous concept... Offers enough to stretch the most able of A Level students while remaining simple enough in layout to support the weakest at the same time. B Kemp, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Twenty five A3 mind maps with activities to support the exploration of Songs of Innocence and of Experience at A Level. Mind maps cover:

Analysis of the poems using thematic linking: divinity in humanity, childhood joy and sorrow, creation, sexual love, social injustice, pastoral, psychological repression and contraries.
  • Cultural context
  • Genre
  • Form and style
  • Language
  • Comparisons with William Wordsworth
  • Key themes
  • Analysis of all poems

Suggested content for a selection of the mind maps support teachers in the use and delivery of this resource. They are perfect for enabling different abilities and learner types to access the text in an interesting way, enhancing the enjoyment and reinforcing the exploration of the text.

All mind maps can be completed in class or issued as fun homework tasks once completed they turn into a fantastic set of posters and a useful revision tool!


What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5195)
"A sophisticated and informative resource. A good introduction to the cultural context to Blake's poetry. The mind maps are thorough and detailed. I liked the interactive element of the resource - for example where students were encouraged to answer questions or fill in sections of the mind maps for themselves. I really like the way this resource encourages students to look at a range of varying influences on Blake's poetry, so he is viewed in context. The notes on Romanticism were particularly informative. The poetry analysis was pitched at a high level and would encourage students to emulate this sophisticated style." A Davenport, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"A labour-saving resource for teachers! Excellent learner- and teacher-friendly resource which collates essential information while prompting thorough-going analysis of many of the 'Songs'. The level of detail and balance of information with literary/linguistic analytical comments are particularly strong. All the Assessment Objectives are catered to - close focus on language, form and structure; critical readings and context - and all to a suitable degree." M Lester, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This is a fabulous concept. A 'mind maps' resource could be so simple and basic, but this offers enough to stretch the most able of A Level students while remaining simple enough in layout to support the weakest at the same time. Brilliantly conceived. I like its thematic and comprehensive approach, meaning that more important and more complex poems appear on different maps." B Kemp, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
