IGCSE literature teachers and poetry lovers
The aim of this course will be to help teachers become less intimidated by the IGCSE Song of Ourselves poetry section in the belief that:
-as the themes of poetry are universal their students will be able to establish links between their world and the "world" of the poems.
-poetry is the genre which offers the greatest interpretive freedom.
-the conciseness of the poems will allow teachers to delve into their syntactic and lexical components in a short teaching period.
-the section provides students with a wide range of styles and themes, which will come in handy when tackling Paper 2, the unseen section of the exam.
Songs of Ourselves, Volume 2 A selection from Songs of Ourselves (Cambridge International Examinations Anthology of Poetry in English) Volume 2 (Cambridge University Press). The following 14 poems from Part 2: Birds, Beasts and the Weather: Judith Wright Australia 1970, Thomas Carew The Spring, Philip Larkin Coming, Thomas Hardy The Darkling Thrush, Ruth Pitter Stormcock in Elder, Stevie Smith Parrot, Vivian Smith At the Parrot House, Taronga Park, Alice Oswald Eel Tail, Peter Reading Cetacean, David Constantine Watching for Dolphins, William Barnes The Storm-Wind, Kofi Awoonor The Sea Eats the Land at , Allen Curnow You Will Know When You Get There, Robinson Jeffers The Stars Go Over the Lonely Ocean.
A blend of text-oriented and reader-oriented approaches for participants, and their students, to be able to respond as freely as possible to the words of each poem.
Articles on the different poems will be recommended along the course.
