From the resource collection(s): Unseen poetryUse this pupil friendly guide to help prepare a written response.
I wrote this for KS3 students. I spent most of my time in an Upper School environment where students joined us in Yr9. It meant you had just one year to get then ready for GCSE. When we were working on a poem that required a written response this format was the one I started with. Once this was mastered they moved on to the more detailed sheet available on this site.
