If you are introducing poetry to new year 7s or starting to explore form, structure, language and poetic devices, you'll know that helping students to articulate their own, personal response to a poem is key to building their engagement and interest.

Try First impressions of a poemInference rectangle or Ideas for approaching a poem for instant feedback and honest responses which will help to validate students' reactions and build their confidence when discussing poetry.
