Comparing to literary works can be challenging! 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.’ 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. This is a must watch for students in Years 8 - 9.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for Year 8-9 or S2-S3 students who are studying Poetry in English.
