"We're Going to Read Poetry in This Class?"
Frank, Thomas E.
Teaching Theology & Religion, v8 n1 p47-50 Jan 2005
How can poetry be a resource for effective teaching of congregational life and leadership? Drawing on poetry from an array of sources, the author weaves a narrative to discuss specific strategies employed for using poetry in the classroom. Recognizing the capacity of poems to awaken latent imaginations and evoke new insights about church leadership among his students, the author provides details about particular methods that can serve as alternative approaches for learning about a subject.
