Poems of War and Conflict by Famous Authors

by  Lucienne Sharpe- Touch the Sky

Program image

Maya Angelou and Carol Anne Duffy tell us different stories about War and Conflict.

One talks about Discrimination the other talks about the way a photographer tells his story as his images become real in
 the photography room.
The poems we will investigate are:  " Just like moons and like suns, with the certainty of tides, just like hopes springing high Still I rise" Maya Angelou.
" He has a job to do. solutions slop in trays."
 Carol Anne Duffy War Photographer.
Reading these poems are they really so different and what do you see in them and how they are written?

I have been an educator for many years as Head of English and Performing Arts. I have gained exemplary status by Ofsted. I have now gained a Masters Degree in how to write a novel and am about to publish my first book. It is all these wonderful skills I bring to my lessons, especially in constructing good stories and the understanding of the genius of Shakespeare. Join me please on this journey of delight as we share the wonder of creativity and excellence. Imagine seeing the true Macbeth, the love of Romeo and Juliet, or the ability to write a story that gets top marks. Learn the beauty of Robert Browning's The Marriage Portrait, the heartbreak of post-war poetry, and the poems of Maya Angelou.I offer Art as well to develop key skills of line and color focusing on the history of Art and Fashion.I will teach and inspire you, and work with you to enhance both writing and historical skills. I offer books and worksheets to enable you to develop skills for successful outcomes, especially exams.I have won many awards with the CILC.

We will read both of these poems out loud. It would be great if before the lesson the students could be prepared to read a line each.Taking in turns for such a topic can be very powerful
