The Pupil and Poetry.
Ediger, Marlow
Pupils should develop a thorough appreciation for poetry. Poetry may be correlated with different curriculum areas in elementary schools, such as science, math, and health. Students can be introduced to various poetic forms, such as couplets, triplets, limericks, haiku, and free verse. Teachers should encourage experimentation and novel ideas in the writing of poetry. Various teaching methods can be attempted to foster an understanding of imagery among students. Creative thinking is also an important skill which teachers must foster by providing a psychological environment in which students feel free to explore. Teachers should provide an environment which facilitates the stimulation of student thinking. Students can gain a great deal from peer group work and the sharing of ideas with each other. Learners should have ample time to engage in the writing of poetry and in creative thinking. (HB)
