Poetry - Introducing Peter Thomas

Description

Discover a way to liven up Key Stage 3/4 poetry lessons and engage even the most reluctant student through the simple, unexpected technique, of reading poetry aloud.

In this CPD session aimed at GCSE students and English teachers, former teacher and exam board moderator Peter Thomas introduces his passion for poetry and describes how effective teaching can inspire students to enjoy and understand reading verse, as well as developing a technical understanding.

Peter acknowledges teaching poetry can be difficult, but suggests introducing students to reciting a poem out loud within the class.
