Get ready to serve up a tantalizing feast of poetry lessons. Poetry à la Carte is an entire menu of classroom-tested ideas for teaching poetry.Teaching poetry is a cinch with these classroom-tested ideas. Start by introducing poetic devices (alliteration, simile, etc.) and prewriting exercises. Then, move on to the main course-a feast of ideas for writing original poetry. Add a sampling of 15 traditional poetry formats and the meal is nearly complete. Finish with projects for sharing poetry through art and oral language. This book includes: - complete lesson plans, - sample poems, and - writing instructions for students.This comprehensive guide offers new ideas that will spur students' creative thinking and offer them new formats for poetry writing. The relevant topics provide powerful motivators for developing written and oral language. The result is a sumptuous banquet that will tease the palates of both beginning and experienced writers, providing them with a variety of unique opportunities for developing written and oral language skills.
Connie Homan Weaver is the author of Poetry a la Carte and coauthor of Personal Projects: 21 Projects for Self Discovery and Celebration.
