Cunningham, Peter
MCT, v19 n1 p39-43 Aut 2000
Describes how bilingual fourth and fifth graders at one London elementary school learned geography by writing poetry. This effort involved: engaging with the topic, consolidating knowledge and understanding, and extending knowledge and understanding. Children were highly motivated to learn. Poetry was the driving force behind their learning as they shared their personal experiences in a secure environment. (SM)
