Poets in School
What better way to bring poetry to life in the classroom than having a live poet? Whilst we believe that poetry is served best by being a consistent part of a classroom diet, having a poet in the class can greatly raise enthusiasm and awareness of poetry, and celebrate the school's own achievements in the art; this can lead into a beneficial spiral of excitement feeding into achievement, and vice versa. Their visits can slot neatly into a school day, whether as part of the lessons or assemblies.
Poetry itself can reach across the spectrum of pupil needs; its tolerance toward forms of expression can allow those struggling with literacy to shine, while formal complexity can offer outlets to the gifted and talented
Where do I find a poet?
If you would rather find your own poet, you should be able to contact your favourite poets through their publisher or agent. The Poetry Society can forward post to any poet on our books (although, of course, can't guarantee they will get back to you). You can also find details of writers who work in education at NAWE, which has an online database of writers (see

Often, poets use their imagination to celebrate the community in which they live in specific details and description are very important in poetry.
Iguanas in the Snow
You will focus on the community in which you live. We all live in communities that have developed certain unique characteristics over the years. Many of these features give people a sense of pride in their community. Often, poets use their imagination to celebrate the community in which they live in original, striking, and insightful ways. As poets, your task will be to use your imagination to see your community in a new way. For an example of what I mean, read two of my poems that celebrate the San Francisco Bay Area-a city, a neighborhood, and a region where I have lived for many years. The first of the two poems, which is called "City of Bridges," is on page 7 of Iguanas in the Snow. Read the whole poem several times. Notice that in the first four stanzas I give some physical or exterior descriptions of the city of San Francisco. Discuss the following questions with a classmate:
  • How do you explain the title "City of Bridges"?
  • What physical features of San Francisco appear in the first four stanzas?
In the second part of the poem, I give a different kind of description of the city. Talk with your partner about these stanzas:

25. Growing Young Poets
Growing Young poets. My first aim is to turn children on to poetry, (An example of a Teacher Resource File on a specific children’s poet.)
Growing Young Poets Secondly, I want to get young people involved with poetry as I show them that poems paint specific pictures by using strong verbs and clear images. Thus, I try to select a poem that the students can act out with me and as we say the words and perform the actions, the poetry becomes a part of them. For instance, I frequently use the well- known "Fog" by Carl Sandburg: The fog comes We act out the poem together. Then we talk about the specific picture of fog Sandburg creates. I ask them why Sandburg uses "cat feet" rather than "dog feet". Depending upon the grade level of the class, I may introduce the term metaphor, and we talk about Sandburg’s using the cat’s movements as a metaphor for the fog’s movements. The children love this acting out, and they never tire of doing the same poems over and over. In fact, after performing "Fog" a few times, the students can say the words alone, and they don’t forget them. "Fog" becomes a part of their personal poetry repertoire. (If you wish more help with the acting out of poems, consult Allan Wolf’s books listed on the Bibliography.) adapt these to your own situations, adding or deleting as you choose. Remember to use your own expertise and your own personality as you seek to excite the children with your enthusiasm for poetry.

The Poetry of Leaving Overview
This activity contains additional poems by contemporary Ohio poets to supplement the lesson that begins on page 129 of the Ohio Reading Road Trip Instructor's Guide. This activity, "The Poetry of Leaving," explores poetry that deals with the experience of leaving one's hometown. The two poems selected for this section share two specific characteristics: They both deal with changes in the lives of Ohioans and their writers' choice in words, phrases, and images that create emotional impact. In this section, students will learn that poets choose every word for its precision of meaning, which reveals the emotion that the poet wants to convey. The first poem here will be treated in more specific terms than the second, with the understanding that students can apply what they have learned through one poem to their understanding of the other. Getting Started Lesson Objectives

Activity Time: 30-40 Minutes
This poetry lesson plan is a great way to introduce your pupils to descriptive poems and helps them to review or remind themselves of what they have learnt on specific topics at school.
To start with a list of topics should be written on the board, on a worksheet or hand out cards. Some suggested topic ideas could be: Alternatively you may like to suggest a book that has been read in class. Pupils should then be asked to pick a character, person or object relating to this topic. This will provide the basis on which their poem is written - from the chosen subject's point of view. Some ideas on what to choose are: A soldier in the war, an Egyptian pharaoh, a Tudor gentleman, a school bus on its way to school, a child in the playground, a tree in the rainforest. It is probably a good idea to first work through one of these topics on the class board, involving all pupils to help along the way. Once your chosen topic has been decided you should then present your pupils with a list of three questions to think about: What can you see?

Teaching Poetry: Generating Genuine, Meaningful Responses. ERIC Digest.
Charles R. Duke (1984) has noted, "English teachers have given some attention to aesthetic reading, usually terming it the development of literary appreciation, but many of the classroom practices used to foster that appreciation have been counter-productive." Instruction on comprehending and appreciating poetry has especially been regarded as ineffective. Either because of a lack of appreciation for their students' abilities to study poetry or because of well-intentioned enthusiasm to show students the wonders of the form, many teachers have force-fed "meanings" to puzzled students or have taught poetry by way of dissecting poetic techniqueshere is a symbol, here is a metaphor, and so on. The literature in the ERIC database, however, offers many ideas on useful, more productive approaches to the study of poetry as the several samples discussed here illustrate.

Poetry can be used to support children emotionally, to inspire them, to bring them joy . . . and to help them be successful speakers, readers, and writers. All of these purposes can be incredibly powerful for students who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), whether through light tech (e.g., eye gaze), communication devices, and/or computers. Poetry for Language: Poetry can be a scaffold for language learning, such as:

These features can also make poetry especially accessible for students with disabilities:

The funding organisation behind the poetryclass initiative . "Poetry is one of the many ways we can understand and enjoy language. As it is part of literacy the more teachers can encourage the appreciation and use of poetry the more it will help our drive in schools towards better written and verbal skills. This initiative is not about trying to turn everyone into poets. It shows that having fun with poetry is a great way to help improve pupils' abilities in both reading and writing as well as speaking and listening. Teachers with less confidence in poetry will be able to use it in class to develop creative writing and extend childrens' literacy experience at all Key Stages."

    Overview In this lesson, students experiment with the use of factual information as a tool that a poet can use to communicate a message, idea, or thought. The students create a "classroom zoo", each choosing an animal and researching facts about that animal to include in their poem. To help the students understand the technique, you first read and analyze such a poem with them. They do have to use appropriate grammar, spelling and punctuation in the final draft of their poem, but the emphasis is on communicating, rather than on perfecting style. "The not to produce thirty full-blown lifelong poets but to touch the kids with poetry, with a feeling for art that may grow from specifics outward for many years and affect many of their responses to daily things, that their lives may be open a touch more to inner and outer vividness." from How I Teach Poetry in the Schools , by Jack Collum.

    "He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven"
    Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams.
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
