Poetry - Less is More

Description

How condensing poems into just a few lines can help develop, improve and ignite the writing skills of Key Stage 3 and 4 students, in this CPD resource for English teachers.

CPD leader, Peter Thomas, introduces the cinquain, a poem which uses a five-line pattern, to middle and secondary teachers.

He challenges them to write their own cinquain poem, as a demonstration of good practice for inspiring reluctant poetry students, as well as condensing the work of keener GCSE candidates.

This video will help teachers when planning poetry lessons for GCSE students.
