Refugee Blues: discussion circle

Today I covered for a colleague currently under canvas near Buxton.  His Year 9 group were a revelation.  I decided to do a semi Socratic circle discussion of Auden’s Refugee Blues and discovered that the activity was a novelty for them.  I explained what I wanted, rattled through Edexcel IGCSE S+L assessment criteria and gave them a few minutes to prepare.

Then I said that I would record the event!

This is the outcome.  I think they were brilliant and have produced something that might be used a as a revision tool or as an entry discussion activity.  I hope you enjoy it, and would welcome feedback.  They had no notes for this, only copies of their anthologies.
