New Opportunity for Poet-Teachers! 2016 Schafer Fellowship for the Conference on Poetry and Teaching

“I teach poetry because it is an ideal tool for critical thinking, language acquisition, and personal reflection. I teach poetry because it is one of the best ways to engage students in an understanding of mindful expression, revision, attentiveness, and the complexities of the writing process. I teach poetry because, as an educator who seeks to engage even the most reluctant reader, poetry offers rich, sophisticated text in manageable, microscopic chunks. Poetry insists that one slow down – as a reader, speaker, listener, and writer – to notice subtleties often overlooked in other genres. I teach poetry because it covers a multitude of Language Arts skills.

I teach poetry because it authentically invites originality and student voice into the classroom. Simply put, I teach poetry because it works.” Continue reading
