Word journeys with readers and writers
Poem Central seeks to help us better understand the role that poetry can play the life of our classrooms. It introduces us to poets, teachers, and students who are actively engaged in making poetry, illustrating the power of poems to illuminate the ordinary, to nurture and inspire us.
This comprehensive exploration is divided into 3 main parts: weaving poetry into our lives and classrooms, reading poems, and writing poems. It is further divided into short, easy-to-read sections that have a specific focus, shoe poets at work, highlight information on crafting, define poetic terms, feature finished work, include classroom examples, and list additional resources.
In Poem Central—a place where people and poems meet—teachers and students will discover how to find their way through poetry, and start their own unique word journeys.
