Poetry in the Classroom.
Petitt, Dorothy, Ed.
These reprints from the "English Journal's" department, "Poetry in the Classroom," present successful approaches to teaching 22 poems. The poems are grouped under seven headings: "Poems from the Tradition,""The Creation,""The Carpe Diem Theme,""Where Shall Man Journey?""Symbolic Settings,""Poems for the Junior High School," and "Poems of our Climate." Each poem is followed by an article which explicates the poem and makes suggestions for classroom procedure in which emphasis is placed upon questions that help students discover the expression of the poem and delight in both the process of discovery and the discovery itself.
