What Are You Teaching Today? Poetry That Inspires!

Kick-start the use of poetry in your classroom

"April's theme of National Poetry Month can be a great way to kick-start the use of poetry in your classroom. I'm keeping this book on my desk in April: She Walks in Beauty: A Woman's Journey Through Poems, selected and introduced by Caroline Kennedy. It's a reminder to myself to read poems from it daily, and enjoy the experience. Do you have a favorite book on poetry? Can you think of one, dig it out and start to share it with your students?"
