Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

In this class students will get an overview of how to analyse and compare two war poems: ‘The Soldier’ and ‘The Mother’. The session will be based on a specific assignment: ‘Compare how the writers present war.’   Firstly students will be shown how to understand poetic devices and language features with the intent of commenting on them.  Then they will learn how to embed and explain quotations in your writing. After this class, students will be able to compare any two poems that they are covering in school using their skills learnt today.
