About the Author:

Betsy Franco, poet and former teacher, is the author of over fifty books, including children's picture books and poetry collections (Mathematickles! and Counting Our Way to the 100th Day!). She also anthologizes teenage writing (You Hear Me, poems and writing by teenage boys; Things I Have to Tell You, poems and writing by teenage girls) and writes professional books for the classroom. She and her husband live in Palo Alto, California, and have three sons.

From School Library Journal:

A published poet offers hundreds of practical ideas and approaches for teaching poetry, applicable to multiple grades. The book is divided into two main sections. Rationales & Practical Ideas for Teaching Poetry consists of 11 short chapters covering such topics as how poetry differs from other writing forms, understanding rhyme and line breaks, publishing and presenting student work. Unpacking the Poetry Forms discusses 16 forms, including ballad, sestina, limericks, and multivoiced verse. Franco uses her own work as teaching examples; chapters conclude with bibliographies of additional titles, divided by level (elementary, middle, and high school). There are suggestions for units and single lessons, explaining concepts, and open-ended questions to ask. Franco is enthusiastic about her art and her book offers encouragement to teachers in a range of grades and circumstances.–Cris Riedel, Ellis B. Hyde Elementary School, Dansville, NY
