GCSE English - Poetry Visualisation

mediumblue

Summary

A lesson on poetry for KS3/4 English students, designed to boost confidence when analysing a poem's various interpretations.

The poem "Storm in the Black Forest" by DH Lawrence is used in the lesson, because of its varied interpretations.

After asking her class to analyse the poem, lead practitioner in English, Rosie Pannett, gets the students to draw what they feel as she reads it, in order to open them up to deeper interpretations.

This KS4 English lesson at Peacehaven Community College, breaks the perception that there?s only one right answer.

Rosie's lesson plan is available in the extra materials section.
