Product Description

Book Description

Studying Scottish poetry is an essential element of the Higher Still English course and this book is written with the express purpose of preparing students for this part of the exam.

From the Author

An integrated work scheme on Scottish poetry
Each chapter deals with a different poet and contains: notes on the poet and his/her work; suggested study points for discussion under the headings Understanding, Analysis and Evaluation; points for revision at two levels; critical response guides; an unseen textual analysis exercise at two levels; suggestions for critical essays; and ideas for writing, with some help. At the end of the book, there are sections on Useful Definitions and some general guidance on writing both critical essays and essays for the Language Study Unit. I chose poets who are frequently taught in our schools but, as well as some old favourites, I have included some of their less familiar poems. You will be able to find thematic links, sometimes between poems by the same poet and sometimes between poems by different poets. (A companion book is available, also from Amazon - 'Selected Scottish Poems Analysed'.)

Format: Paperback
This is just the kind of book English teachers in Scotland have been crying out for over the years. It is written by someone who knows the course (and the children) inside out. Full of useful commentary, clear and concise information. Buy it!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent resource for English teachers, especially if you are just starting to teach Intermediate 2 and Higher. Each section has: background information on the poet, Understanding, Analysis and Evaluation questions to get into each text, paragraph plans for critical essays, related suggestions for the Writing paper and more. It's the best teaching guide I've bought in a while!

I am naturally good at English but textual analysis and poetry have always been my downfall. This book combined with Practice in Textual Analysis Higher English have saved my life!

The practice from these books got me full marks in my Higher English Textual Analysis NAB and my poetry critical essay in the final exam received 24/25.
