I'm Zac, a secondary English teacher from Australia. Let me tell you more about this resource.
Audience and Context:
This 12 slide powerpoint model is a poetry analysis presentation I created for students who are studying war poetry in Year 10 to 12. The presentation analyses Wilfred Owen's poem Dulce et decorum est. Owen was a British soldier and poet in the First World War.
On each slide, in the notes section, there is the analysis which can be read aloud and it matches the quotes and imagery on each slide. The presentation runs for 4 to 5 minutes and integrates the key quotes from the poem, including the poetic terminology. Wilfred Owen's poem is freely available on the internet or in his collections. As Owen's poetry carries an anti-war sentiment, I've titled the analysis "Inglorious" because according to Owen it is not sweet and fitting to die for one's country as the Latin title of the poem suggests.
Teaching and Learning:
I have used this oral poetry analysis successfully many times to show students what a poetry seminar or presentation should look like where I've added my own interpretation and integrated key quotes to support my analysis. Click the preview to see the transcript analysis or watch video.
If you need a full copy of the poem, please go to Poetry Foundation's website (https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/46560/dulce-et-decorum-est). For more background and analysis of War Poetry, visit the Ohio State University's page (http://hti.osu.edu/history-lesson-plans/european-history/poetry_world_war_one). This site has more information and activities of other war poets such as Brooke and Guest.
I hope you find this helpful. If you have a question, please ask and I'll respond within 48 hours. Also, if you have time please check out my other resources, including the freebies.
Good luck and if no one else tells you, you are making a difference. Thanks for being a teacher!
