Does anybody have any idea on what anthology poems are coming up tomorrow? Preferably the Taking a Stand Collection (because that is the one that I'm doing), but if anybody has nay idea for any of them, that would be great.

Lol haha. Personally if anyone knows how to answer these poems. That would be great as I need some help. Like do you follow a Mnemonic or something? For example - In English Language I use 'PEARL'.

P- Point
E- Evidence
A- Analysis
R- Reader
L- Link back to the question.

I use SMILE because it contains a lot of the elements of poetry, but allows you to deviate e.g. meaning and effect can be combined. I also just read last year's examiner report; they criticised a 'cookie-cutter' approach to structuring the essay as some never actually reached the discussion of language, so SMILE is basically for finding the features in the poem and not for structuring your essay.

S - Structure
M - Meaning
I - Imagery
L - Language
E - Effect
