PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

5 lessons including a 'Battleships' inspired game. Great for revision!

Resources are:

- Reader Responses
Students read a selection of responses other readers and critics have made about Levertov's poetry. They then rank the statements and analyse their choices using evidence from Levertov's poetry.

- 'Ways of Conquest' - Aspects of War
How does Levertov metaphorically talk about love in the poem? And what are the parallels between the invasion of the heart and the invasion of another country?

- 'Do You Hear That Whistle Blowin'... Close Reading
A series of questions which students must answer then arrange thematically into two groups of their choosing.

- 'In Thai Binh (Peace) Province' Context Game
An in-depth behind the scenes context game which works like battleships. Students are transported back to North Korea and see the destruction Levertov would have experienced.

- 'A Time Past' Close Reading
How closely does Levertov parallel her messages about the Vietnam War with her personal life? A series of questions to focus students on these two different perspectives.
