Reading Course Term 3: War Poetry

This term, we examine the context, meaning and language use in a range of war poetry. We explore how a writer’s purpose can influence their use of language, form and structure in a poem, and think deeply about the effects of those choices. Students learn how to approach analysing poetry in a thorough way, as well as learning how poetry can be a powerful way to express ideas and emotions. We will read and analyse poems in tutorials, but students may wish to re-read poems carefully outside of tutorials in order to help fully appreciate their meanings and complexities.

Tutorials will focus on group discussions, direct teaching and written work. Students will receive live feedback on their work in tutorials.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of the tutor reading aloud, discussions about the novel and written work
  • Reading requirements – Students do not need to read the poems before the tutorials. Texts will be provided in tutorials
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
