|A fresh option at H.L.L.C.||.|
This term I am going through the poetry of Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin for the first time with a 6th Year English class. This will be the first year the poetry of Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin could possibly appear on the Higher Leaving Certificate exam paper. To date, our class has covered three poems: Translation, Death and Engines and The Bend in the Road. The class split into pairs and I challenged each group to create a brief QwikSlide presentation of their poem using Classtools.net. With the help of class discussion, their text book and some great online resources they were able to create their presentations. After we complete the poetry of Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin we hope to return to this exercise and complete our set of presentations.
