Hi all, I have started preparation for the Yr 10 GCSE English controlled assessment 'explore the ways writers present conflict in texts you have studied', looking at war poetry comparisons. I am confused on a couple of issues though and would really appreciare any clarification. 1- The spec says we need to teach 15 texts/poems- is this necessary?Are others teaching 15 too? I thought of teaching 5/6 poems altogether. 2- the spec also says three pieces should be handed in for GCSE English (so we will also be doing an OMAM CA and the Romeo and Juliet CA), but also says there is 4 hours to complete them all? Is this right? Or is it 4 hours for each separate one- 1hr 20 seems so short for each individual piece if it is split?! Argh. 3-Could anyone recommend some fantastic war poems to me? So far, I have taught 'dulce..', 'charge..' 'falling leaves' and suicide in the trenches' and am shortly to teach Jessies Pope's 'who's for the game?'. Can we teach modern war poems or WW2 poems? Lots of questions...very confused!! Thanks in advance people.
