Poetry Covers It All! Integrating Poetry in All Curriculum Areas.
Broughton, Merry G.
This collection of ideas for poetry is intended to provide teachers with tips for ways in which poetry could be integrated into the daily classroom curriculum. Noting that talking about poetry is an important step in helping students see poetry as a viable outlet for their voices, the collection states that poetry should also offer students connections to their real lives. It recommends including classical as well as contemporary poetry for students' reading enjoyment. The collection is divided into the following sections: (1) "A Prayer for Children" by Ina Hughes; (2) Forward; (3) Intentions; (4) Beginning; (5) Poetry Ideas (contains 44 ideas); (6) Reading Poetry Aloud; (7) Assessment and Evaluation; and (8) Concluding Thoughts.
