Poetry with Ease



Mindsprings presents a workshop on
Poetry with Ease


by Usha Pandit 
If you are an effective poetry teacher, your students should be able to independently read, interpret, enjoy and critique poetry at their age level. If that is not happening, this is a workshop you truly need.
Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of emotion and yet for most students and some teachers poetry is unexciting and difficult. The poetry workshop will look at the dynamics of teaching and learning poetry, the features of poetry, figures of speech, the language of poetry appreciation and testing poetry. A selection of poems will be offered for hands-on work and anthologies of children’s poems discussed for teaching purposes.
