I used this with a new member of my WEA poetry class. It is something I have found invaluable in the past.
Now you see why I can't afford paid membership!

I am a great believer in "a poem a day" - often as a start or an end to a lesson. Each half term I also set a "learning by heart" piece as well. These are a great source for "collect a quote" - a sheet all my students have in their folders. They are not all discussed - or analysed - they are initially for pleasure - or for the message they hold for me. Sometimes I pick them - sometimes they are a student contribution. This is a popular exercise. My students find it sheer bliss to do something that is "not for an exam" - we do it because we like it. We do the lot - Homer to the present day - long (sometimes just a verse from a long poem - and students run off their favourite quotes to adorn their bedroom walls - top quote - "To strive, to seek, to find - and not to yield" - plus "Tomorrow do thy worst for I have lived today" together with the verse "Then up spoke brave Horatio, the captain of the gate......." - you can see that I teach a lot of boys!

I visit terminology regularly with students. We start off with a word wall - and then move onto using both examples from texts and the terminology for starter and end of lesson activities. I award "prizes" for students who find me new examples. I also start small - and then add a new word once the others appear to be known. By Yr11 they tend to use the precise terminology required accurately. I have shoeboxes full of words to explain - and quotes to define.
