IGCSE Literature teachers and poetry lovers
For those teachers who would like to concentrate on a single poet - rather than on fifteen different ones as in the selections from Songs of Ourselves – Carol Anne Duffy’s poetry is a good option.

A postmodernist in both style and themes, Duffy will make students, and their teachers, ponder on topics as varied as the construction of the self in childhood and adolescence, current cultural concerns or gender issues.
The following 15 poems:
‘Head of English’
‘War Photographer’
‘In Mrs Tilscher’s Class’
‘We Remember Your Childhood Well’
‘The Darling Letters’
‘In Your Mind’
‘The Good Teachers’
‘A Child’s Sleep’
‘Death of a Teacher’
A blend of text-oriented and reader-oriented approaches for participants to be able to respond as freely as possible to the words of each text.
Articles on specific poems will be provided along the course.
