(18-slide editable PowerPoint-based teaching resource with 3 worksheets) 

Resource Contents

This lesson (aimed at middle-ability GCSE students) explores ‘The Farmer’s Bride’, by Charlotte Mew.

The lesson begins with a differentiated 'Do Now' activity which encourages students to consider what the poem might be about by looking at a series of relevant images. 

Following this, students explore contextual information relating to the poet Charlotte Mew. 

For the main activity, learners complete a differentiated, double-sided worksheet that enables them to explore Mew’s use of form and language in the depiction of the farmer’s marriage. 

The lesson concludes with a brief learning review that asks students to write a tweet summarising the poem. 

Suggested answers are provided for all tasks.
