Today I covered for a colleague currently under canvas near Buxton. His Year 9 group were a revelation. I decided to do a semi Socratic circle discussion of Auden’s Refugee Blues and discovered that the activity was a novelty for them. I explained what I wanted, rattled through Edexcel IGCSE S+L assessment criteria and gave them a few minutes to prepare.
Then I said that I would record the event!
This is the outcome. I think they were brilliant and have produced something that might be used a as a revision tool or as an entry discussion activity. I hope you enjoy it, and would welcome feedback. They had no notes for this, only copies of their anthologies.
