Poetry and World War II: Creating Community through Content-Area Writing
Friese, Elizabeth E. G.; Nixon, Jenna
Voices from the Middle, v16 n3 p23-30 Mar 2009
Two educators and a classroom of fifth grade students integrated poetry writing into social studies curriculum focusing on World War II. Several strategies and approaches to writing poetry are highlighted including list poems, writing from photographs and artifacts, and two voice poems. The study culminated in a poetry reading and the creation of a class poetry anthology. Through poetry, students were able to demonstrate historical understandings while engaging with difficult issues through writing, sharing, conferencing, and performance.
