    Craner has a gorgeous voice, actually.
    I do? Why, thank you. That ought to help when I try to engage a bunch of 14 year olds with Imtiaz Dharker and Nissim Ezekiel poems tomorrow afternoon.

    Fucking AQA Cluster fucking 1, fellow English teachers. What a load of rubbish. 'Limbo', 'Island Man'...give me a break.

    I know this won't please everyone but...

    Mariela Fostrup and Vicki Butler Henderson or whatever her name is - posh, deep gravelly women's voices a winner everytime

    actually I don't teach those poems but I know of them, I teach a different spec but the drive to be inclusive has led to bad poems by good poets being chosen in the name of 'other cultures'.

    There are times when all you can do is grit your teeth - i find thigs like teaching the writing triplets can be soul destorying whilst a lesson on improving your choice of verbs in sentences when taught to low abilitiy classes can be positive and uplifting. Then again I've got a bright class this year who are totally trashing 1984 with their sullen apathy.

    Still I'm teaching John Clare to the sixth form and that's a gas.

    Yeats - have you ever heard him do Innisfree? Bardic, utterly bardic.
