CIE Literature: Songs of Ourselves Part 4 Scheme of Work

An absolutely outstanding resource that will become a Bible when teaching these poems. I can't wait to start teaching the poetry again this year with a new tool in my kit-bag! Thank you so much - hours of work saved for me and my colleagues. B Hart, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

This Scheme of Work has been designed to guide the teaching of the set poems selected from Part 4 Songs of Ourselves Anthology as part of the Cambridge International IGCSE (0486 and 0476).

Includes 21 fully supported lessons with differentiation, and scaffolded and creative activities to engage students with the poetry and to prepare them for their exam. Four PowerPoint presentations have also been included to support lessons.

The SOW clearly ties in with the assessment criteria to ensure all areas are being covered, including the development of key skills such as IT, working with others and problem solving. It will save hours of preparation time.

Poems covered:
  1. Sujata Bhatt, ‘A Different History’
  2. Gerard Manley Hopkins, ‘Pied Beauty’
  3. Allen Curnow, ‘Continuum’
  4. Edwin Muir, ‘Horses’
  5. Judith Wright, ‘Hunting Snake’
  6. Ted Hughes, ‘Pike’
  7. Christina Rossetti, ‘A Birthday’
  1. Dante Gabriel Rossetti, ‘The Woodspurge’
  2. Kevin Halligan, ‘The Cockroach’
  3. Margaret Atwood, ‘The City Planners’
  4. Boey Kim Cheng, ‘The Planners’
  5. Norman MacCaig, ‘Summer Farm’
  6. Elizabeth Brewster, ‘Where I Come From’
  7. William Wordsworth, ‘Sonnet Composed Upon Westminster Bridge

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5399)
"It had interesting and different ideas, which I think is great to keep students engaged when they have to get through an anthology of poetry. I loved Lesson 11: the origami exercise as an example of the struggle the poet, Curnow, is going through to create a thing of beauty. It also has several opportunities to write essays which they will have to do in the exam and shows them how they could group poems to write about two together." C McGirr, English Teacher
"I really like the variation of tasks throughout the SOW. There is a good range of activities that address the assessment criteria outlined in the syllabus as well as some more creative extension tasks that can be used for the CIE First Language Course. I like the fact that the resources ties in the criteria, that it incorporates the use of technology but not the overuse of it." J Lopes, English Teacher
"An absolutely outstanding resource that will become a Bible when teaching these poems. I can't wait to start teaching the poetry again this year with a new tool in my kit-bag! Thank you so much - hours of work saved for me and my colleagues. Highly detailed, academic and will stretch and extend able pupils whilst at the same time support those less able with scaffolded tasks. I like the fact that each lesson is highly structured - each task is very different and builds the skills needed for this examination. Pupils will enjoy learning the poems using these tasks - it is imaginative and well-researched. The planning is superb and will translate easily into our lesson timings - I would feel confident that any one of these lessons would produce an 'Outstanding' lesson observation if followed correctly.
