Assessment

Poetry works particularly well for the Individual Oral. An individual poem makes for a good extract from a literary work. When you speak for 5 minutes about how a poet presents a global issue in a poem, do not forget to reference other poems by the poet as well. Strike a 50/50 balance between the poem and the collected poems of the poet.
