'Ecopoetry is nature poetry that has designs on us, that imagines changing the ways we think, feel about, and live and act in the world.' This unit introduces students to ecopoetry and illustrates the difference between traditional nature poetry and poetry which responds to the Climate Crisis. It contains activities on:

  • Pollution

  • The Anthropocene

  • Deforestation

  • Flood

  • Drought

  • Species extinction

  • Post-Human Worlds

Each section comprises an introductory discussion, a selected poem about the issue with questions and creative writing activities, a list of poems to use as companion pieces, and links to further information about the issue which can be used for comprehension and discussion. This unit has been tested with a mixed-ability Year 10 group (age 15).
