In the second lesson, we look at how the meaning of a poem is shaped by rhythm. In this lesson we use drums and drumming to illustrate how rhythm works in poetry and we also discuss the importance of stressing the correct syllables to create a rhythm. As an extension to this lesson you may want to ask learners to present the poem they found for lesson one to the rest of the class. As part of their presentation they should emphasise the rhythm by clapping, clicking, stamping or drumming and afterwards they should be able to explain to the class the effect created by the rhythm.
