I Never Told Anybody: Teaching Poetry Writing in a Nursing Home.
Koch, Kenneth
This book describes the group instruction of poetry writing in a nursing home and contains poems, written individually and collectively, resulting from that workshop and others like it. During each workshop session, the author presented subjects or ideas to be used in poems, recorded individual and group responses, and read back the finished products to the class. The author's emphasis on the positive aspects of all the contributions made his students more receptive to the notion of writing poetry and more responsive in the workshop. The collection of poems from this and subsequent workshops is organized according to each lesson's subject. (RL)
