1. What helped you to read ‘Singh Song!’ as a ‘poem’? What features does it have that are typical of poetry? Make a list.
2. Choose one stanza from the poem that you find interesting, effective or dramatic. Now re-write it in the form of a paragraph of a short story. Try to use all the words from the original stanza, as well as your own. (You can standardise the spelling of the words if you like.)
3. You have created an ‘immersed’ poem – where the poem is hidden in another piece of writing. Swap with a partner, and see if they can spot (by underlining or using a highlighter) the words from the poem, without looking at the original poem. Do the same with their work.
- What changes did you make to sentence structure, vocabulary and style?
- What did you do with Nagra’s distinctive use of dashes – did you include them or ignore them?
- How did you identify the words your partner had ‘immersed’ in his or her story? What clues did you use?
