Do you hesitate to use poetry with your students because you think they won't "get it" or because of your own negative experiences with poetry? During this interactive workshop, you will produce a visual "map" that will engage your creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills. This strategy has been used successfully with second graders who became fluent in identifying various aspects of poetry. You will receive a packet of ideas for teaching poetry and poems you can use that you can use as soon as you get back to your classroom.  A lucky attendee will take home a book of poems as the winner of a raffle.  We are going to have some serious fun with poetry.
