Written by a practiced poet and author of many books for children and adults, this book explores how to write, read, and teach sixteen poetry forms. Part I of the book offers a thoughtful, easy-to-read view of how to teach poetry. For each poetry form, Part II includes: a brief history, characteristics of the form, everyday parallels, several original sample poems, demonstrations for writing it, and an extensive bibliography. The author links poetry to state standards in an engaging way for teachers and their students.
