Notes on Teaching Poetry.
Crabb, Alfred L., Jr.
Kentucky English Bulletin, v19 n1 p10-15 F 1969
The teacher can stimulate an appreciation of poetry in his students by selecting, reading aloud, and discussing only those poems to which he himself responds strongly. He can also develop students' enjoyment of poetry by encouraging them to bring in their own poetic discoveries and by alerting them to the many possible interpretations of a poem. Finally, by combining grammar and poetry, the teacher can give students new tools for the interpretation of poetry while instructing them in pronoun antecedents, inversions of sentence pattern, parallelism and subordination signals, punctuation, grammatical positions, and neologisms.
