Develop students' own writing from the themes of the poems: from 'In My Country', they could write creatively about where they're from, extending the work done in the starter activity; from 'Geography Lesson', they could perhaps write about inspirational teachers or about places that they have loved.
There are lots of other poems about place available in the Archive; a particular favourite is 'Two Seasons'
by Valerie Bloom, but there are plenty to choose from by clicking on the Abroad
links on the 'Browse poems by theme' page. A lovely poem to look at in association with 'Geography Lesson' would be Cavafy's 'Ithaka', especially for more able students.
