IGCSE Literature teachers and poetry lovers


The aim of this course will be to help teachers become less intimidated by the IGCSE Songs of Ourselves poetry section in the belief that:
- as the themes of poetry are universal their students will be able to establish links between their world and the "world" of the poems.
- poetry is the genre which offers the greatest interpretive freedom.
- the conciseness of the poems will allow teachers to delve into their syntactic and lexical components in a short teaching period.


From Songs of Ourselves Volume 1, Part 3, the following 15 poems: Maya Angelou, ‘Caged Bird’ Elizabeth Barret Browning, ‘Sonnet 43’ Sujata Bhatt, ‘Muliebrity’ Boey Kim Cheng, ‘The Planners’ Isobel Dixon, ‘Plenty’ Rosemary Dobson, ‘The Three Fates’ Robert Hayden, ‘Those Winter Sundays’ Seamus Heaney, ‘Mid-Term Break’ Mervyn Morris, ‘Little Boy Crying’ Norman Nicholson, ‘Rising Five’ Adrienne Rich, ‘Amends’ Edna St. Vincent Millay, ‘Sonnet 29’ Dennis Scott, ‘Marrysong’ Stevie Smith, ‘Not Waving But Drowning’ William Wordsworth, ‘She Dwelt Among the Untrodden Ways’


A blend of text-oriented and reader-oriented approaches for participants to be able to respond as freely as possible to the words of each text.


Articles on specific poems will be provided along the course.
