Poetry Comprehension. Age 12+ August 3rd to 6th. 11:00am to 12:15pm


Primary school students frequently complain that they find poetry ‘difficult’, which can lead to a lack of confidence in secondary school. In this course, we take one poem per class, unpacking its meaning together and discussing rhyme schemes, meter and poetic forms. We undertake short, manageable written comprehension tasks that specifically address questions likely to come up on 13+ poetry comprehensions. By the end of the course, students will be able to tell an iamb from a trochee, a sonnet from a ballad—and may even be tempted to try their own hand at poetry!
