This book contains everything an English teacher could need to engage and captivate their pupils in contemporary poetry and prose.
The step-by-step lesson plans are easy to adapt to suit individual teachers' needs, and include suggestions for utilising ICT and homework ideas.
The reflective style of the photocopiable worksheets encourages pupils to draw on their own experiences when analysing the issues raised.
The contents are themed to reflect the current curriculum, and to be entertaining for the teacher and students alike.
Extracts include In Mrs Tilscher's Class by Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy and To Sir, With Love by E.R.Braithwaite.
English teachers and pupils aged 14-16 will relish this set of inclusive and accessible lesson plans and worksheets, although advanced younger pupils or adult learners, especially those on EFL courses, will also find them absorbing.
All materials are also available for download from the Continuum website.
