Product Description
Auden’s poem is a perfect exemplar of the use of rhyme and metre/rhythm for effect. This lesson links the poem to an engaging, historically interesting documentary with oral performance of poem and music. This resource comprises teacher instructions and background information; discussion notes on rhyme and metre; a copy of Auden’s poem; link to documentary on YouTube; a fun in-class reading activity; and ten questions for students to answer in writing and discuss. Questions increase in complexity, with two ‘extension’ questions; each has suggested length, and a ‘cue’ to guide students’ full sentence answers.
