CONTENTS

Notes On The Poems:
This page is designed to give some context to the poems and contains information about the poets, the time of writing, structural elements etc. This page could be given to students, although it could also just be used as background information for the teacher.

Plain Version Of The Poems:
There is a simple version of the poems without annotation, clipart or distractions. This is included so that you can use it to project on the board, on an overhead page or give to students for their own initial annotation.
 
Annotated Guided Reading Worksheet:
Included is a page containing the poem with guided reading questions. These questions are intended to draw out comprehension of the poems and guide students’ analysis. These questions could be completed orally in pairs or groups, or could be set as a written task.
