A-level Study Boost: Unseen Poetry and the Creative Process

Rebecca Bullard, University of Reading

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.
