  • Multi-level lessons that engage all learners
  • Strategies to make poetry teaching a breeze
  • Extension activities that really stretch
  • Visual approaches that make learning stick
  • Oral work that makes learning fun and challenging
  • Using Drama to enhance learning and increase motivation
  • Engaging with the real world to ensure quality
  • ICT based lessons that are really worthwhile
