This PowerPoint breaks down Wilfred Owen's Dulce Et Decorum Est. It places emphasis on the figurative language and poetic devices used in the poem. It also has the rhyme structure annotated to the left of each line.
Each slide provides colour-coded annotations for language features and sounds used in the stanzas, and explanation of elements of WW1 to consolidate students' understanding of themes and imagery used by the author.
Slides are animated, so the teacher can introduce the lines of poetry and ask for student thoughts before revealing the explanations at the click of a mouse/keyboard tap.
When I use this resource, I provide students with a copy of the poem to stick into their own books, so they can annotate as the PowerPoint is presented. I often print the poem out (a stanza to a page), and have my students work on a stanza in pairs, attempting to identify language and sound features before looking at the PowerPoint.
Enjoy annotating, and let me know if you encounter any issues with this resource.
