Challenging and differentiated work for GCSE pupils and bridges the gap between GCSE and A Level. The pack provides teachers with a rich source of poems and a wide repertoire of classroom strategies for exploring poetry in the classroom. Includes DVD with high quality readings by living poets and actors. Providing active and enjoyable critical approaches to poetry. They encourage an interplay between reading and writing poems. Some activities are short single lesson ideas while others provide a sequence of lessons, with fully developed written outcomes. The poems themselves span different centuries and cultures: from Tennyson, Donne and Christina Rossetti to John Hegley, Carol Ann Duffy and Jean 'Binta' Breeze, Moniza Alvi, Lavinia Greenlaw and Paul Durcan. The teachers' notes support the activities and explain the thinking behind them but also point up ways of adapting the strategies for future use. The DVD containing over 50 poetry readings, includes many poems from The Poetry Pack and acts as a complementary classroom resource, bringing the poems to life, with high quality readings by living poets and actors. It goes beyond the photocopiable print resource in offering more poems by selected poets and additional visual material.
