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.

The first step to reading Unseen Poetry is to read it once through to determine what you do and don't understand. For more tips like this, watch this class! This class will focus on essential skills for 'Unseen Poetry Analysis' and will analyse the poem, 'Branch Library' by Edward Hirsch. By the end students will have a better understanding of structure, themes, imagery, and language. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 - 11 and is a great tool to use when revising to feel confident.
