How to Teach Poetry in the Secondary Classroom (Grades 6-12)

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

6. how to be open to unusual topics, grammar and punctuation, line breaks, word choices, and memorization

Mandatory minimum for registration must be met
