Reflection: Safety Writing Poetry - Section 1: Day 1


I was not a child that understood nor enjoyed poetry.  When I had to begin teaching poetry, I felt completely lost until I found the book,Teaching Poetry, Yes You Can, by Jacqueline Sweeney.  Many of the ideas I’ve incorporated in my lessons originated in this book.  This book helped me enjoy teaching poetry and validated my abilities because numerous students have gone on to win awards with their poems.
