Learn how to create a "culture of poetry" that demonstrates the
power of words and strengthens the language lives of children.
"Poetry Goes to School" is a comprehensive resource for teachers
who want to fill their classrooms with poetry. The authors have
expanded the territory covered in their previous book, "Mother
Goose Goes to School." In this rich collection, they have gathered
and classified a remarkable collection of poetry and teaching
strategies into a meaningful, manageable program.
The book is organized around eight inviting units: patterns,
word play, nursery rhymes, ceremonies, images, voices, stories, and
information. Each unit contains: a description of the
genre;inviting lessons and tools for using them in
classrooms;sample poems to motivate language discussion;ideas for
exploring all forms of poetry with children.
Teachers can select from the wide range of response activities
that will involve the children in reading, writing, role-playing
and the arts. Assessment techniques for supporting the poetry
program complement this inviting resource.
