Moon on the tides AQA Poetry

Discussion in 'English' started by jiggs, Mar 6, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    Has anybody already taught the poetry for AQA as yet? If so, does anybody have any tips of how to cut back on the number of poems studied?

    Thanks

    We've all started in our department. Why cut back - fifteen poems isn't too bad, isn't it? There are three poems that won't be named on Foundation and three that won't be named on Higher so that might cut the number if your whole class is doing the same paper.
    I've done four and planning on doing four more in the summer term. They've gone down quite well and I'm happy to be doing some new poems after so long with the old anthology.
     
  4. Thank you for this

    'There are three poems that won't be named on Foundation and three that won't be named on Higher '
    I am new to AQA. How does this work exactly?
    Thanks

    We're all new to this! Nothing is easy to find on AQA - you need to look here:

  6. I agree with previous comment that you don't need to cut back. I taught this before Xmas and they went down really well. Think I genuinely prefer these new poems to the old! Some great resources on the AQA site...

    It simply means that three poems will never be named in the F Tier paper questions and 3 different poems will never be named in the H Tier paper questions. Therefore, it is possible to study just 12 poems for each tier. The information as to which poems in each cluster will not be named is available in the link already given or in the Literature Teacher's Guide. This information has been readily available for the best part of a year.
     
  8. Key poems
    The following poems will only be named in Higher Tier questions:
    Character and Voice: Medusa, Les Grands Seigneurs, Casehistory: Alison
