EMC CPD Online: Teaching the Power and Conflict Cluster of the AQA Anthology: Inspiring Strategies (Twilight 9.12.21)

Course content

In this webinar we will offer ideas for ranging across the ‘Power and Conflict’ cluster of the AQA GCSE Poetry Anthology. We will then take a closer look at ‘My Last Duchess’ and ‘Tissue’, getting to grips with these poems on an adult level and using them as the basis for exploring practical classroom approaches to develop students’ personal and critical responses. The course will assume that you have some familiarity with all the poems in the collection.

NB: This is a repeat course.
