As part of my Yr 9 curriculum, I introduced a year 9 competition a couple of years ago. The students are working on a war literature module and are required to submit a poem for a Remembrance Competition.
This year I have prepared this slide-deck to help my class prepare. I will use a visualiser to write alongside them and will post the result. Hopefully the winner, when posted, will be an altogether stronger poem!
The winning poems from an earlier year can be seen here: winners: poetry competition
My my first draft in the lesson, from the visualiser… a bit of work to do. Why did I try trochaic hexameters in the beginning?
