Unseen Poetry Teaching Companion for GCSE English

Unseen shouldn’t mean unprepared! Equip your class for the daunting unseen poetry component of the new English Literature GCSEs with this invaluable companion, exploring the work of a variety of poets from different time periods. Suitable for all boards!

Poets covered:
Robert Frost, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Seamus Heaney, Maya Angelou, Siegfried Sassoon, DH Lawrence, Margaret Atwood, Thomas Hardy, Charles Causley, Sarojini Naidu, Emily Dickinson, Ted Hughes, John Clare, Edgar Allan Poe, Helen Dunmore

By working through the resource, students will learn and practise essential skills for analysing unseen poetry.

For each poet:

  • Insightful and stimulating activities for a selected poem ask all the right questions
  • Examples of possible interpretations offer a starting point for independent analysis
  • An annotated sample essay shows how to tackle unseen poetry in an exam context – a range of example responses across the resource demonstrates how different levels are achieved
  • A practice question gives students a chance to develop essay-writing skills

Engaging student tips for getting into poetry, a bank of suggested teaching ideas, and a key terms glossary complete this priceless pack.

“This is an extensive resource, presented in a good, easy to follow format with information essential to studying poetry of any kind. It could be used as a generic resource for teaching the skills of analysing any poetry for any component of any examination. I also liked the fact that for each poem, a bank of quotations and possible interpretations were provided to help students begin their analysis.” – K Young, English Teacher
