We provide resources and curriculum-linked lesson plans, to support a teacher to deliver the following programme:
We recommend that students work in the following order:
Step 1: Getting started - Starter activities for writing poetry
Step 2: Ideas-generation stage - Your memorable class experience
Step 3: Development - A workshop with your allocated poet complemented by poetry development activities and lessons
Step 4: Performance and anthology - We will prepare an anthology of students' poems and provide opportunities for performance
Relevant resources will be available to download from this page as the project progresses. Resources will only be accessible to programme participants. Read more about our Young Poets programme, the areas we work in, and how to get involved.
