About this event:

Celebrate National Poetry Month with your K-12 students! Reading and writing poetry with our classes can be the perfect transition from winter doldrums to end-of-school craziness. This three-hour workshop will provide not only fresh ideas for teaching students to read and enjoy poetry but will also prepare participants to help their writers transfer poetic elements to elevate narrative writing in order to meet important Common Core Standards, such as “using concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely.” Throughout this interactive workshop, participants will try out strategies to discover the “poet” in each of us. A take-home packet of tried-and-true poetry ideas will spark students’ creativity—enhancing both poetry and narrative writing skills—and will provide lessons to jump-start teaching in the Fall.
