An interview with the authors of Poetry Mentor Texts

January 30th, 2013

Stacey Shubitz over at the excellent Two Writing Teachers blog recently interviewed Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli, authors of Poetry Mentor Texts: Making Reading and Writing Connections. Lynne and Rose talked about the role of poetry in the Common Core Standards and how to make poetry a part of the classroom culture all year long. “Poetry gives students possibilities for collaboration and offers opportunities for students to use the strategies learned through poetry as they write in other modes during writing workshop. Teachers might want to include poetry as a choice in writing workshop or include it as part of a multi-genre presentation which can include art or music.”

You can read the full interview on Two Writing Teachers. The book is still available for full preview on the Stenhouse website.
