Stepping Sideways into Poetry Writing
Teaching Students the How-to and the Heart of Writing Poetry
A practicing poet who works in schools shares poetry lessons that ease teachers and students into writing poetry. The fun, friendly exercises include writing riddle poems, fractured fairy tale poems, vegetable-and-me poems, and many others. Each lesson includes a model poem, a warm-up activity, and knock- out ideas for performance and publishing. Line breaks, white space, dramatic monologue, writing from the heart-- it's all covered.
