Poets in the Schools.
Connecticut Commission on the Arts, Hartford.
All eight poetry projects described in this volume, made possible by a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant through the Connecticut Commission for the Arts, were innovative programs designed either to promote changes in teacher training methods or to provide secondary schools with direct experiences with poets through readings and classroom workshops. Five projects dealt specifically with student teachers. Of these five, three included poets and student teachers working with pupils in cooperating schools; the other two were conducted exclusively on college campuses with student teachers who had completed their practice teaching. The sixth project was a Visiting Artists program and did not involve student teachers, but focused on pupils and teachers working with a poet. The Northwest Project brought poets to secondary schools in this area of Connecticut, and the Connecticut Poetry Circuit enabled poets to read their work at several colleges and provided a forum for student-poet readings.
