1.3. Unit 1&2 Study Design

1.3.1. Comment on how the text represents its social and cultural contexts Develop critical and creative responses to the text Explore and comment on the literary features particular to texts

1.4. The power of Google Docs can be shown to students by showing them the "Dark and Stormy" example, which shows a collaborative Doc with contributions from writers of the classics. It's a simple introduction to get students valuing the power of collaboration.

1.5. Unit 1&2 Study Design

1.5.1. Comment on the ways texts represent personal, social or cultural concerns Explore and comment on the literary features particular to texts Make appropriate reference to textual detail to support a comparative interpretation

2. Students create a collaborative online resource of poems and outside readings to facilitate class discussion. Each week, a different student selects the poems and readings for the class. These are compiled on Padlet, which is also used to conduct initial discussions about the selected poems.

2.3.1. Draw connections, contrasts and parallels between texts Develop critical and creative responses to texts

2.4. Students can also be encouraged to share and engage with their own poetry choices outside of class. They'll be encouraged to access and keep up with poetry blogs like The Poetry Foundation's Harriet, to discover new poets and add their work to the Padlet.

3. Students make use of the class Padlet to reflect on poems studied. They select a poet, and write their own poem inspired by the poet's style and thematic content, with the intention of sharing their poems first between the class, and then with a wider community via a class Blog. This allows students to comment on each others' pieces and workshop them collaboratively.
