The Poetry Archive

The teachers' section of the Poetry Archive exists to help make poetry accessible, relevant and enjoyable to a wide audience. The teacher section is designed to help you to get the most out of the Poetry Archive, and you will find information, lesson plans and ideas for inspiring activities to bring poetry to life into your lessons.

The teacher section includes lesson plans and activities for all key stages, built around Poetry Archive recordings. The lesson plans and classroom activities were created by poetry specialists and aim to provide lively, interesting ways of teaching poetry, and will help busy teachers get the best out of the Archive.

The use of poetry isn't restricted to English lessons, of course. The site also offers activities for History teachers, and material for other subject areas is planned for the future.
