  2. Create flashcards about context for the different texts, linking to specific events in the texts. Think about historical setting, social expectations and typical features of the genre.
  3. Create flashcards for the different poems in the Power & Conflict section. Include 2 key quotations and annotate with analysis. Make links between the poems thinking about the themes they discuss.
