Writing Poetry in the School Library (And Reading It Too!)
Wendelin, Karla
School Library Monthly, v29 n7 p17-20 Apr 2013
Although April is National Poetry Month, poems are for any time... and all the time... and sharing poetry should be part of the library experience. Before we ask students to write poetry, however, we need to read poetry to and with them. We also need to provide opportunities for them to browse the poetry section and select poems to read to each and to the whole group. This article describes how to get started and provides a number of other possibilities for the school librarian to create enthusiasm for poetry. (Contains 4 figures.)
