Poetry - Lament for Steam

mediumblue

Summary

This CPD resource helps Key stage 3 and Key stage 4 English teachers introduce pronunciation in a fun and unexpected way using performance.

Peter Thomas demonstrates how encouraging students to perform a poem instead of merely reading the piece can inspire and engage even the most reluctant learners.

CPD trainer Peter, shares one of his all time favourite teaching poems to the group of middle and secondary teachers.

Peter also introduces the excitement of pronunciation as a way of recreating the sound and feel of a steam railway, even down to the whistle of a train.
