Stuart Hoskin introduces his Year 11 English class to poetry from different cultures using Developing Tray, encouraging pupils to develop their thinking skills while reading and analysing texts.
With the incomplete text of a poem, the pupils are asked to fill in the blanks and words begin to emerge like a photograph emerges in a developing tray.
Working in pairs, the pupils are encouraged to write the next few lines of the poem. By using this system, the pupils are able to work way above their usual academic level.
