Poetry Instruction: Its Effect on Attitudes Toward Literature and the Ability to Write Prose.
Shapiro, Phyllis P.; Shapiro, Bernard J.
A program for teaching poetry was administered to 82 working class children, testing the suggestion that improved ability in writing poetry would result in improvement in their attitude towards literature in general, and in their ability to write prose. Although limited by the small number of intact groups and possible questions on the validity of the attitude scales, the study concludes that the poetry instruction had beneficial side effects in the suggested areas.
