Why Poetry

Last year, I did a huge poetry unit with my students. We had a lot of fun, and my video of that lesson ended up getting posted on the ASCD Edge blog. This year I even shared all the steps with several rubrics for the world to use.

As we all know, April is national poetry month. But many of my students often tell me they don’t like poetry. As a lover of spoken words, I have worked to encourage my student to like poetry. And I was happy to see that it happened once again.
