Studying Poetry Through Independent Learning

Independent learning can be an incredibly powerful teaching tool.  When deployed carefully, giving students responsibility for their learning can inspire them, promoting engagement in lessons and leading to high quality work.  Having successfully used independent learning when teaching poetry to year 9 students, Mrs Jen Mason undertook an induction research project to see if a similar approach would be effective in year 7.  You can read more about Jen’s research below.
