Liz Lochhead – Class Presentations

Here’s your presentations, at last – sorry about the delay getting these uploaded. Those of you who DIDN’T hand this in (and I know who you are) should complete this task – it really helps with your understanding of the poems.

Liz Lochhead PowerPoint Presentation

You are going to select ONE of Liz Lochhead’s poems and present it in a PowerPoint to the class, with suitable images and music.

You should upload the presentation to this post by clicking ‘Respond’ at the bottom and uploading your file.


  • Choose a poem – go for the one you like the most/find most interesting.
  • Take notes on the type of images/music you will use to present it.
  • Remember – this presentation should encapsulate the central concerns of the poem, and help US to understand its meaning.
  • You should include both the lines of the poem itself, as well as any notes and annotations you have to analyse the poem.
  • The presentation should be well-made and designed – take this task seriously. If you don’t make an effort, I won’t be pleased.
  • These will be uploaded to the blog to act as revision guides for everyone in the class.

The last two slides of this PowerPoint include examples you can use for inspiration. THEY DO NOT INCLUDE ANALYSIS – YOURS MUST.
