ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME:
The term 4 class will provide students with an introduction to personal response writing, language features & the great poets of World War One (WW1).

This course will provide students with an understanding of the NCEA Personal Response* writing procedure and requirements, while at the same time helping them to understand the literary themes, ideas, traits, and language features of the great poets of WW1. (*AS90854 Personal Responses)

Why WW1 poetry?
The poets of World War One (WW1) are known for the depth of emotion they put into their poetry in response to the Great War. Many English teachers study these works in years 11 and 12 and use them to teach students about language features, themes, characters, imagery and other literary concepts, all of which help students to respond to literature in a more personal way.

In addition to looking at the poetry of WW1, students will need to read their own self-selected text to use as the basis of their own personal response. A list of suggested texts will be provided in the first class and student will have 3 weeks to complete the reading of their chosen text.

By the end of the 6-week course, students will have learned about all of the above and have written at least one full personal response and other smaller pieces of developmental writing to help them expand their writing skills.
