Using Poetry across the Curriculum: A Whole Language Approach.
Intended to help create an environment where poetry flourishes, this book offers elementary school teachers a formula for integrating poetry into all areas of study by exploiting their interconnections. Each chapter in the book is broken into sections dealing with basic principles and concepts. Each subsection presents and discusses poems that highlight, support, or enhance the study of these concepts. At the end of each chapter, collections of poems that focus on the subject are listed, along with pertinent professional references. Chapters in the book are: (1) Poetry and Thematic Units; (2) Poetry and Science; (3) Poetry and Mathematics; (4) Poetry and Social Studies; (5) Poetry and Language Arts; (6) Poetry, Picture Books, and Novels in the Literature Program; (7) Poetry and Art, Music, Physical Education, and Health; and (8) Sharing Poetry.
