Ratings and Reviews
My students love the Poetry Station website; the range of poets and performances are just incredible, and growing all the time.
This app takes the independent exploration of poetry to a whole other level! Whether it's creating the poetry cafe vibe of Kate Tempest's Cannibal Kids or the beautifully produced animations which accompany John Agard's readings - I can't wait to see which ones emerge as favourites now that they can all be accessed on iPhone and iPad.
A stunning resource!
Videos of poets reading and sometimes commenting on their own work. Actors reading some older poems. Very easy to navigate. Useful for teachers or A level and GCSE students. Still in its early stages I think and hopefully will have more poems in the future.
What a useful resource
Another excellent poetry resource from those good people at The English & Media Centre. This archive of materials should be invaluable for students aged 14-19 (and their teachers).
