Fewer…!

how are we supposed to do it

How Are We Supposed To Do It?

AO1

• respond to texts critically and imaginatively; select and evaluate relevant textual detail to illustrate

and support interpretations

(SAY INTELLINGENT THINGS! INTERPRET AND ANALYSE. QUOTE)

AO2

• explain how LANGUAGE, STRUCTURE AND FORM contribute to writers’ presentation of ideas, themes and settings

These are the only two assessment objectives for Section B (Unseen Poetry)

They carry equal weighting

now you just need to think about how to write it to show the examiner your skills
Now you just need to think about how to write it to show the examiner your skills

Some facts:

  • You will write for 30 minutes in response to the unseen question.
  • You should plan for 5 minutes, write for 20 minutes and check for 5 minutes.
  • You should aim to write 5-7 paragraphs around key ideas in this time.

To create your perfect pizza…

  • What will it look like?
  • What toppings will be on it?
  • Be adventurous! Cheese burger and chips pizza anyone?
t hink of approaching the unseen like making a pizza
Think of approaching the unseen like making a pizza…..

But if you add extra toppings (details) you would have a incredibly exciting feast.

So what other elements would you add to your answer to make it an extra special response?

There are certain things you need to have: base, tomato sauce, cheese

So what things would you definitely need to put into your answer to make it successful?

your basic ingredients and your special toppings
Your basic ingredients and your special toppings
  • Meaning – what are the ideas/themes/issues/feelings that the poem explores.
  • Main Structure/Form points– how does it look on the page?
  • Main Language and Techniques – that are used to explore the ideas/feelings/themes. Inc. Diction - Are there any words or phrases that you find interesting? And Imagery – Some of the words and phrases you have used create a visual image. What are these visual images and what do they make you think of?
  • Personal Response – how does the poem make you feel? What do you think it’s about? What are you meant to learn from this?
  • Voice – What type and tone of voice do you imagine? who is speaking in the poem? What is the persona of the poem? Why do they stand out to?
  • Title – what does the title make you think? How does it link to the poem?
  • Opening and Closing lines are really important – how do they link with the title?
  • Other, more detailed observations about structure egWhat lines seem to really stand out? Any very long or very short lines? What are the stanzas like? Any differences in the length and why? Sonnet? Couplets?
  • Other, more detailed observations about language and techniques eg alliteration.
putting it all into practice
Putting it all into practice

The Next Unseen Poem…

How to Leave the World that Worships Should

Let faxes butter-curl on dusty shelves.

Let junkmail build its castles in the hush

of other people’s halls. Let deadlines burst

and flash like glorious fireworks somewhere else.

As hours go softly by, let others curse

the roads where distant drivers queue like sheep.

Let e-mails fly like panicked, tiny birds.

Let phones, unanswered, ring themselves to sleep.

Above, the sky unrolls its telegram*,

immense and wordless, simply understood:

you’ve made your mark like birdtracks in the sand -

now make the air in your lungs your livelihood.

See how each wave arrives at last to heave

itself upon the beach and vanish. Breathe.

Ros Barber

Use the techniques sheet to annotate the poem. It is not exhaustive and you should be able to find more.

Write the techniques into the boxes.

Fill in the remaining boxes.

What do you think is the poet’s attitude towards the way we live and work in the

modern world and how does she present this attitude to the reader?

Finally, do one as a group.

Fill in the first box

Discuss your answers as a group, filling yours in with anything that comes from the discussion that you missed.

Fill in the second box

Children In Wartime

Sirens ripped open

the warm silk of sleep;

we ricocheted to the shelter

moated by streets

that ran with darkness.

People said it was a storm,

but flak*

had not the right sound

for rain;

thunder left such huge craters

of silence,

we knew this was no giant

playing bowls.

And later,

when I saw the jaw of glass,

where once had hung

my window spun with stars;

it seemed the sky

lay broken on my floor.

Isobel Thrilling

How does this poet present the ways children are affected by war?
