Product Description

There are two distinct voices in this poem; a mother thinking about her son whose gone droving and a father's understanding of the situation. It's clear Lawson had an appreciation for gender perspectives and attitudes.

The centre of this unit is the recording of the work. It is embedded in a PowerPoint that promotes three simple stages of tackling the poem. This complements the workbook activities that can be printed off and used as needed. The 'Before You Read' tasks help prepare students by building on what they already know or by having them imagine what they may encounter. The 'As You Read' tasks centre on the poem itself. In this instance we look at what the mother and father say aloud but also what they may be thinking. And the 'After You Read' activities attempt to place what students have been exploring and place it in context by imagining their own reactions.

This work is also part of a Lawson Collection which includes, Andy's Gone with Cattle, Knocking Around, Mary Called Him Mister, Past Carin', The Faces in the Street and The Glass on the Bar.

There are also works by Banjo Paterson; Waltzing Matilda, The Geebung Polo Club, Mulga Bill's Bicycle, The Man from Snowy River and The Man from Ironbark.
