Product Description
In this unit, students explore the conventions of ballads, before focusing on 'The Gresford Disaster', 'Flannan Isle' and 'Charlotte Dymond'. For each poem, students discover the work's social or historical origins, and activities include sequencing tasks to emphasise the narrative elements of ballads, activities in citing contextual evidence, discussion activities, literary responses, and creative responses.

For the homework unit, students research further examples of ballads, to discuss their cultural and historical context, and to indicate how far they follow the conventions of ballads explored in class.
