The Fire This Time: Renewing the Poetry Unit.
Barton, Fred
English Journal, v91 n3 p55-58 Jan 2002
Notes that the author/educator noticed that his efforts at teaching poetry were failing. Describes how he decided to make poets out of his students--to start by showing how they can be affected by language. Notes that students started with just a word, then wrote poems, and then began to demand forms, which the teacher then introduced to the class. (RS)
