Teaching Poetry in High School
If you were teaching poetry in high school, which poems would you select? Those you studied in first-year English because they were "classics"? Would you teach form and technique? What about rap? Albert Somers answers these and other questions, offering the teacher a vast compendium of resources in a highly accessible format. The book also offers:
- over 40 complete poems
- a discussion of assessment issues
- poetry across the curriculum
- poetry on the Internet
A comprehensive resource for teachers, this book presents practical ideas and myriad ways for teachers and students to discover the joys of poetry.
