In Lesson 7, we learn how to determine a poem’s subject, tone and intention through playing detective and carefully considering clues that are given in a poem. Just like in the other lessons in this series, the concepts that are taught in this lesson should be revised by analysing other examples. The lesson notes deal with difficult concepts, and the learners should be taken through each one of them in detail in order to be sure that they understand them well. Using a range of examples to illustrate each concept will assist learners in understanding these concepts. You may want to get learners to divide into groups to consider the tone and intention of a range of poems. They could then report their findings back to the class. This would expose learners to a wide range of poems, and doing this activity in groups would make examining unfamiliar poems less intimidating.
