A practical guide to teaching poetry

Sheena Cameron and Louise Dempsey of The Literacy Place are excited to announce their latest publication, The Poetry Book. It is a practical guide that supports the teaching of poetry for all students including ‘at risk’ or reluctant writers and targets primary and intermediate teachers. Teaching poetry has many benefits including exploring language and vocabulary, encouraging creative thinking and building reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.

The Poetry Book contains detailed information and fun activities that will encourage even the most poetry averse teacher to have a go! Visit their website for more information.
