Download sample PDF

Including poems by Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, Seamus Heaney, Rudyard Kipling and William Wordsworth, lyrics by Bob Dylan, Stormzy and John Lennon, as well as work on Amanda Gorman's poem 'The Hill We Climb', this download publication supports students in exploring:

  • How texts are read differently, by different people
  • How that can change in different times and places
  • How poems work and what makes them have a powerful impact
  • How writers are influenced by the texts they’ve read and seen, and sometimes draw on them, or quote from them, in their own work
  • How texts connect with each other, and are in conversation with each other.
