Full Description

The reading and writing processes have historically been kept apart, but with this series you can explore their richness for yourself and your students in ways that unite the processes meaningfully and productively.

Explore Poetry
This volume involves you in both the reading and writing of poetry, for yourself and your children. Experiment with reading poetry aloud, "found" poems, writing poetry from prose, and acquiring poems through choral speaking. The "Actions" here help you encourage a sense of play in the composing of poetry, focusing on passion and wonder, combining sound and sense, and transforming the common into the unusual. A concluding section invites ways of spreading poetry throughout the curriculum, integrating it with the study of science, history, and mathematics.
