Poetry Revision SoW for CIE 0475
This is a 4 week PPT SoW for the 'Songs of Ourselves Volume 1, Part 3' Anthology for the Cambridge IGCSE 0475. This is a very thorough and detailed set of lessons that revises all of the skills required to perform well in the exam. The scheme of work should last between 3-4 weeks depending on your class. The lessons follow a step-by-step structure and build up the skills needed through lots of practise and a range of different activities.
There are a range of tasks that build up and practise skills as well as activities that closely replicate the questions in the exam. A range of sources are used in this scheme of work so that pupils can practice their skills on multiple poems. Each question is deconstructed and broken down so pupils understand what they are required to do, how to plan and how to write up a successful answer.
Checklists and peer assessment sheets are also included in the bundle which are useful when conducting practice questions in the classroom or as revision.
