Data Diving into "Noticing Poetry": An Analysis of Student Engagement with the "I Notice" Method
Slaby, Scot; Benedict, Jordan
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v10 n1 p91-101 2019
This paper explores students' engagement in reading poems, examining data on their self-perceptions of their confidence and competence in reading poems before, during, and after using the "I Notice" methodology as adapted from The Academy of American Poets' unit plan, "Noticing Poetry" (Slaby, 2017). The data was collected over the course of a month from January 9 through January 30, 2018 and involved five classes of one hundred general English tenth grade students across three teachers' classrooms at Shanghai American School's Puxi High School Campus. Data indicates that the "I Notice" method and the "Noticing Poetry" unit and its activities increased student engagement in reading poems and fostered greater student self-efficacy as readers of poetry.
