“Poetry is a great way to level the playing field–kids delight in the sounds…poetry appeals to our ears our eyes, our imagination, our very souls.”
Teaching poetry is daunting for many teachers, but given the right approach it serves an important role in literacy learning, and students love it. In this short video interview, Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli, authors of the new book Poetry Mentor Texts, encourage teachers to use poetry throughout the day and curriculum, and explain how their book makes it easy to do so. You can preview the entire text of Poetry Mentor Texts on the Stenhouse website!
