Year 9 Homework Project

Your homework will be to create an anthology of 15 poems you have enjoyed from the list of poets on the next page.

You must bring in 3 of your favourite poems from 3 different poets each Friday. These will form part of the discussion on Friday's lessons so don't forget.

By the end of the half term you will be carrying out a written and oral presentation on your anthology covering:

Why you chose the poems?
What do you think caused the poets to write the poems (3 of your 15)?
What feelings are apparent within the poems (3 of your 15)?
Why you think poetry is given value in the curriculum?

Extended Written Response (2 sides of A4)

An analysis of your favourite poem and why it appeals to you.
