#NationalPoetryDay: writing Golden Shovel poems about freedom

img_3441These brand new poetry writing resources for National Poetry Day (Thursday 28th Sept 2017) use The Golden Shovel form and explore the theme of Freedom. The Golden Shovel is an exciting new form, devised to honour the poet Gwendolyn Brooks. These materials are suitable for use with Year 9 – Year 13 students (aged 14 plus). Please use and adapt them as you feel is most appropriate for your particular students. You should also encourage young writers to enter The Student International Golden Shovel poetry competition (details included).  Resources were compiled by Sue Dymoke. Poems are reproduced by kind permission of their authors. Please ensure that you include the poets’ names and acknowledge their work when using these resources with young people. Happy Poetry Day. Happy digging for new freedom poems. Click here to access the resources.
