Poetryclass Resources: Free lesson plans from The Poetry Society

On this site, you’ll find a wide selection of poetry lesson plans and activities covering the whole spectrum of key stages, and exploring many themes and forms of poetry.

Each resource has been created by our team of poet-educators and poetry-passionate teachers; all with extensive experience of encouraging an enthusiasm for poetry in the classroom.

You can use these resources in conjunction with our other education programmes for schools and young people, from Poets in Schools, to the life-changing Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award for 11-17 year olds, and Young Poets Network‘s tips and prompts for under 25s.

In these strange times, when many of us are learning or teaching from home, we are creating more multi-media poetry resources for you to use with your students, from stress-busters to unseen poetry exam tips. Visit our Learning from Home page for more.

Let us know how you find using our resources, and how you adapt them for your class. You can tweet us at @PoetryEducation or email [email protected].
