Led by: KB Ballentine
During this session, poet KB Ballentine will facilitate discussion, model strategies, and lead teachers through classroom practices on the following topics:
(1) poetry’s effect on people;
(2) how interpretations of poetry can differ;
(3) how people lose interest as they grow older (no time to wonder, dream, imagine;
too burned out and/or disillusioned;
(4) how to teach other aspects of writing through poetry (i.e. parts of speech, syllables,
reading skills, diction, etc.);
(5) how to choose poems students can relate to and/or appreciate; and
(6) how to be open to unusual topics, grammar and punctuation, line breaks, word choices, and memorization.
