The Art of Poetry DVD Set is a more-than-fifteen-hour series for The Art of Poetry text that features the author teaching four thoughtful eighth-grade students through the entire book. Many of the discussions, which proceed chapter by chapter, capture the ''magic'' of a Socratic teacher encountering strong students and timeless works of literature. This is a course that focuses on becoming an accomplished close-reader and, out of that delight, responding as a writer. Writing, we believe, is the highest form of reading. Whether your student is interested in writing, wants to understand the way poems are made, or simply wants to become more attuned to language and metaphor, this is an ideal resource - a course in a box for middle school or high school students. The author demonstrates in real-time the end-of-chapter activities, intended to teach students the practice of poem writing.
