"Excellence in Educational Support"

Teaching of Writing Professional Learning Series - Session 1

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.

Cost $75 in-area fee/$150 out-of-area fee (lunch is included in registration fee)
