Poetry is universal and personal at the same time, an interesting combination of concrete images and abstract meanings that can lead to stimulating discussion in the classroom and on paper. Teachers who approach poetry's contradictions and challenges energetically and actively will enjoy great success with their students.The rewards for students are enormous: movement towards cultural literacy, lifelong enjoyment of classic and contemporary literature, and the ability to connect on a personal level to writers from the past and present. This course addresses the needs of teachers by developing reading, writing, speaking, listening, researching, and representing skills, linking to the strands found in national as well as state standards.
