School librarian John Iona won the World Book Day 2012 competition in the TES. Competing against teachers, he won the prize for an innovative resource about the performance poet BRIES. See more details about John and the competition here
John says: “This lesson was put together as an introduction to the poet BREIS, who visited the school to perform for years 7 and 8 in celebration of World Book Day. Learning objective for the lesson was to get pupils to think about poetry, and the way in which poetry can come alive when read aloud. The lesson was delivered by English teachers during year 8 English lessons, and myself during year 7 Library lessons.”
John has kindly agreed to provide us with the powerpoint and the lesson plan which he used, and these can be accessed in the Best Practice document folder to the right of this page.
