Poetry - Year 7 Sequence Linked to Australian Curriculum:English

The Australian Curriculum:English Year Level Description for Year 7 states:

"Students engage with a variety of texts for enjoyment. They listen to, read, view, interpret and evaluate a range of spoken, written and multimodal texts in which the primary purpose is aesthetic. These include poetry."
In addition it states that:

"Students create a range of imaginative types of texts, and are beginning to create literary analyses and transformations of texts."

The Year Seven learning sequence contained in this post was developed by Year 7 teacher Maureen West from Woodlands PS in our work as a Teacher Development School.

The sequence is linked to The Australian Curriculum - English content descriptions.
