Poets Teaching: The Creative Process.
Turner, Alberta, Ed.
This book is a sample of what actually happens when the professional teaching poet sits down with the student poem. It allows the reader to observe the poets in their roles as teachers. The collection of student workshop poems and the teachers' essays about the poems--their analysis, specific criticisms, teaching techniques and procedures--are arranged in 11 groups containing a total of 30 student poems and 34 teachers' responses. These samples of student work and teacher response provide a range of ideas that indicate how student poems are being criticized and how students are being taught to become their own critics. (RL)
