Humanity Vs Place

In this session we explore the 5 poems on the first image, with a focus on the concept of place, and how that is explored across the five poems. There is a folder of 14 resources linked to the strategies discussed included in the package, including a high level model answering a question on place.

Humanity Vs Trauma

This session focuses on the concept of trauma, exploring the links between five poems which focus on physical and mental trauma. Another resource folder full of resources, including resources around the motif of the body across these poems.

Humanity vs Power

In this final session we look at the concept of power, but also begin to make links across the whole cluster. This resource pack is therefore very full – lots of strategies consider how to link all the poems together.
