Are you doing Duffy/Armitage or Heaney/Clarke? Make sure you have the appropriate key poems from the pre-1914 bank and don't try and teach too many of the rest! There's a lot. I'm guessing they're all foundation tier? That'll make it easier, as you can stick to the same key poems for each kid. Key poems are here: http://store.aqa.org.uk/qual/pdf/AQA-3702-3712-W-REV-POEMS-08.PDF The AQA site is pretty good in terms of resources, but it's like trying to navigate a brick. All the Lit A spec stuff is here: http://www.aqa.org.uk/index.php?id=759&tabid=1&tx_rgtabs_pi1[showAsFirst]=2 Good luck! It's actually a really nice spec and I miss it now that I teach at a school that uses WJEC. Their English spec is much better though.
