Poetry teaching – Gillian Clarke with Peter Buckroyd

As part of the 2009 The Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival, Gillian Clarke with Peter Buckroyd, previously Chief Examiner, AQA GCSE English held a workshop, organised by Tower Poetry.

Introduced by Professor Peter McDonald and intended primarily for teachers of poetry for the 15-18 year old age group, Gillian (many students’ favourite poet and a key AQA poet) discussed the teaching of poetry with Dr Peter Buckroyd, previously Chief Examiner, AQA GCSE English and the audience.  The workshop was followed by an informal discussion.
