This book explores poetry and pedagogy in practice across the lifespan. Poetry is directly linked to improved literacy, creativity, personal development, emotional intelligence, complex analytical thinking and social interaction: all skills that are crucial in contemporary educational systems. However, a narrow focus on STEM subjects at the expense of the humanities has led educators to deprioritize poetry and to overlook its interdisciplinary, multi-modal potential. The editors and contributors argue that poetry is not a luxury, but a way to stimulate linguistic experiences that are formally rich and cognitively challenging. To learn through poetry is not just to access information differently, but also to forge new and different connections that can serve as reflective tools for lifelong learning. This interdisciplinary book will be of value to teachers and students of poetry, as well as scholars interested in literacy across the disciplines.

Using eleven of W.B. Yeats's poems, John Gordon explores ways of thinking about and teaching poetry in secondary schools and at undergraduate level. He draws together commentary, research, and his own professional experience, to enable his readers to develop flexible pedagogical judgement that can respond to the requirements of a range of students and the demands of texts of varied length and complexity. His readers will be able to apply the key principles he identifies to teaching a broad range of poems effectively and memorably.A Pedagogy of Poetry is original and ambitious, theoretical, and practical. The author synthesizes literary criticism and analysis, considerations of literary pedagogy, the empirical research base, and the theoretical frameworks that underpin people's responses to poetry. He analyses the key books on poetry and teaching and shows where historical understanding will illuminate a poem for students, for example through his analysis of Yeats's 'Easter 1916'. The book is an invaluable resource for English teachers in secondary schools, colleges, and higher education.

A Poetry Pedagogy for Teachers generates imaginative encounters with poetry and invites educators to practice a range of poetry exercises in order to inform instructional approaches to reading and writing. Guided by pedagogical principles prompted by their readings of Wallace Stevens' “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird,” Maya Pindyck and Ruth Vinz provide critical discussion of prominent literacy practices in secondary classrooms and offer alternative approaches to encountering a text. They do this by way of experimental readings of Wallace Stevens' poem toward a set of 13 pedagogical principles that anchor a pedagogy of poetic practices. The book also offers invitational exercises, the authors' own engagements with poetry practices, as well as student examples, visual modes of theorizing, and a gathering of relevant resources compiled by two classroom teachers. This is a book for secondary English teachers, teaching artists, English educators, college writing professors, readers and writers of poetry – both existing and aspirational – and any educator interested in poetry's capacities to pedagogically inform their subject matter and/or literacy practices.

"Youth Poets documents an ethnographic study of the literacy learning of urban high school youth in June Jordan's Poetry for the People program. The book emphasizes how seven students adopted empowering literacies as they read, wrote, published, and performed poetry in and outside of school. Using a sociocultural and critical framework on literacy and pedagogy, the book focuses on the experiences of urban youth-from their own perspectives - to examine the various processes, products, and practices associated with poetry. It contributes to current research on literacy pedagogy in urban contexts, and further grounds connections between poetry production and academic and critical literacies. Not only does the research presented here support the use of poetry in itself, but it makes a case for the ways in which poetry can lead to transformative possibilities in diverse and multicultural classrooms."--BOOK JACKET.

This edited collection offers educators at all levels a range of practical and theoretical approaches to teaching poetry in the context of environmental sustainability. The contributors are keenly aware of the urgency facing the planet’s ecosystems—ecosystems which include all of us—and this volume makes the case that teaching poetry is not a luxury. Each of the book's three sections works from a specific angle and register. Part I focuses on pragmatic approaches to classroom activities and curricular choices; Part II considers policies and politics, including the role of the UN's Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) program; and Part III takes a widescreen view, exploring the philosophical issues that arise when poems are integrated into sustainability curricula. This book exemplifies how poetry empowers readers to think imaginatively about how to sustain—and why to sustain—our world, its resources, and its beauty.

Blends history and theory with practical descriptions of how spoken word poetry is taught and how to produce spoken word events. The Room Is on Fire offers an overview of youth spoken word poetry’s history, its practitioners, participants, and practices. Susan Weinstein explores its grounding in earlier literary/performance/educational traditions and discusses its particular challenges. In order to analyze these issues, the story of how youth spoken word poetry developed as a field is told through the voices of those involved. Interviewees include the people who organized the first youth poetry slam festivals, the founders of central youth spoken word organizations, and a selection of young people who have participated in their local programs and in regional and national events over the last two decades. Narratives about individual and communal efforts and experiences are supported by analyses of full-text poems by youth poets and by reference to contemporary scholarship in performance studies, critical youth studies, and new literacy studies. Blending history and theory with practical descriptions of how spoken word poetry is taught and how to produce spoken word events, the book will appeal to researchers, teacher educators, and K–12 teachers.

Poetry is the oldest and most universal of literary forms, rich in the oral and literary tradition of almost every culture, but fewer and fewer high school students today are given the opportunity to engage with the genre in their English classrooms. Educators, scholars, critics, and poets alike proclaim the great virtues of this art form, yet its pedagogy is not currently a priority in many American high schools, often due to the educational culture of standardization, performativity, objective testing, and attention to the STEM fields. Poetry's vanishing act is important to address as there is continued evidence that it is a worthwhile subject and that ignoring it in the curriculum of high schools can be detrimental to students and teachers. The purpose of this study was to better understand the lived experiences of practicing high school English teachers involved in teaching poetry. The study was designed to investigate the phenomenon of poetry pedagogy, including what is most effective in instruction as well as the barriers that exist to instructional practice. Using the qualitative approach of an interpretive phenomenological analysis, 5 practicing high school English teachers were interviewed to gain greater understanding of their experiences with poetry pedagogy. The participants spoke candidly of their individual preparation, positionalities, values, and instructional practices. The data collected was analyzed to look closely at the themes of learning, respecting, effecting, and barring poetry. The teacher-participants had some differences in their respect for poetry as well as their methods of effectively teaching it, but held many commonalities in their perceptions of the barriers to effective practice and of their lack of preparation.

The two chapters that make up this thesis are culmination of my master’s degree work. While I know this is the point of a thesis, I feel like this project is exceptionally representative of all of the directions my thinking has gone in the last few years. Most predominantly, my work has caused a major rift in how I think about English Studies. On one hand, I am a literature person — I have a certain attachment to literary analysis. It is where I hit my stride and decided to take the path to a doctoral degree. On the other hand, though, I found myself questioning what the point is. I wanted to be an Emily Dickinson scholar... But do we need another one? And, if so, what is the purpose? This project attempts to show how I see literary scholarship, feminist and disability theories, and composition pedagogy as intersecting. While the two chapters that make up this project are incredibly different — they were written differently, they read differently, the first chapter is all about a poet, and the second chapter is all about students — what unites the whole project is the fact that it is actually about me. It’s about me coming to understand English studies in new and dynamic ways. I don’t have to follow the rule that one must choose either the path of isolated literary scholarship or the path of being a writing teacher and researcher...yet. Even though I had planned on being a literary scholar, those plans shifted as I got further into my graduate work. And I had to be and am OK with it. I had to be comfortable with the discomfort and the chaos that graduate work introduced me to. The first chapter integrates feminist rhetorical theory into an analysis of contemporary American poet Susan Howe. The second chapter is a study of my first-year writing course in which I integrated disability studies and feminist theories in both course content and pedagogical practice.

Poems—specifically romantic poems, such as those by Thomas Gray, William Wordsworth, and John Keats—link what goes unremembered in our reading to ethics. In "Tintern Abbey," for example, Wordsworth finds in "little . . . unremembered . . . acts" the chance to hear the "still, sad music of humanity." In The Poetics of Unremembered Acts, Brian McGrath shows that poetry’s capacity to address its reader stages an ethical dilemma of continued importance. Situating romantic poems in relation to Enlightenment debate over how to teach reading, specifically debate about the role of poetry in the process of learning to read, The Poetics of Unremembered Acts develops an alternative understanding of poetry’s role in education. McGrath also explores the ways poetry makes ethics possible through its capacity to pass along what we do not remember and cannot know about our reading.

By looking at the way therapists use poetry in their practices we can find new approaches to teaching and exploring poetry that will make literary study more valuable to students. Poetry therapists approach poetry by focusing on the reader's experience of a poem rather than on the poem's meaning per se. Using this approach to poetry in the classroom has a number of potential benefits for students. First, poetry offers students the opportunity to increase their self-awareness by helping them examine their experience in terms of emotions and images as well as language. Such a process can enable students to have new perceptions and emotional experiences that can benefit them greatly. The study of poetry can also validate students' emotional experiences, particularly painful ones that are often repressed. And poems can also serve as loving external objects that can help students repair their negative attitudes toward the external world. If we allow students to relate to poems emotionally and imaginatively, we can help them achieve the goals of personal renewal and a more positive relationship to the external world. The study begins by examining students' defense mechanisms that prevent them from experiencing the benefits of the study of poetry, and by considering how we can use poetry to relax these defenses. It moves on to consider how the regressive nature of poetry helps students to become more self-aware and integrated. The second part of the study presents specific classroom approaches and exercises that enable students to use poetry to achieve renewal, openness, deeper self awareness, reparation, empathy, and a positive yet realistic view of the world. Part two presents approaches based on brief poetry therapy, experiential therapy, and metaphor therapy. The final chapters deal with classroom approaches to three Pre-Raphaelite poets - Christina Rossetti, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and William Morris - whose work is particularly useful for this approach to poetry.
