Two fully resourced and differentiated 1 hour lessons in which students are guided to independently analyzing 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' by Wilfred Owen, which culminate in students writing a PETER paragraph on it using a scaffold (explanation of PETER paragraphs included).
The second lesson was observed by two members of the senior leadership in my school and rated 'outstanding'.
This two lesson unit would be suitable for a high ability middle school class but is easily adaptable.
This resource includes:
*Full Powerpoint for two lessons (20 slides) - breakdown of each lesson is provided.
* Copy of 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' including glossary of difficult vocabulary.
* PETER paragraph scaffold with sentence starters.
