Improve your skills in analysis and creative writing
What do you do when you encounter a poem for the first time?
How can the process of writing poetry help you to enjoy and
understand the written word in new ways?
On this course, you’ll explore strategies for close reading and
creative writing using a poem called ‘Patagonia’ by Kate
Clanchy as a case study.
You’ll explore the techniques that poets use and consider their impact on you as a reader.
By the end of the course, you’ll be inspired to read poetry in different ways, express yourself more effectively and you’ll have created an original poem of your own.
This course is designed for students studying A-level English
literature, language, history, and drama, and those looking to
study English at university. It will also be of interest to anyone looking to develop their critical thinking about poetry and improve their skills in analysis and writing.
This course will also be of interest to A-level teachers of the
same subjects looking for teaching resources and ideas to use
with their students in the classroom.
