Ed-U-Like: Introducing… PO-LEGO!

So here is a way that I’ve been teaching a poem’s structure for the past few years that a colleague dubbed Po-Lego (the ‘g’ is soft to give it a slightly exotic and continental appeal, belying its humble and completely home-made status). It’s worked equally well for Year 7 right up to Year 11, every time I’ve used it and students are able to write about structure very effectively once they’ve grasped the idea that the way the poem is presented on the page often reflects its ideas and themes.
