By Shirley McPhillips. Discover how to read, talk about, and write poems from this passionate, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth book full of practical instructional gambits that invite readers to dive headlong into poetry. Short, punchy essays help readers, whether teachers or students, connect with poems: for example, how titles can lead us into a poem, how lines work, types of poems (persona, homage, invective, ekphrastic), reading for music, dealing with difficulty. Each essay has a specific focus, provides background knowledge, features both finished work and classroom examples, shows poets at work, highlights information on craft, defines poetic terms, and lists additional resources. Grades 5–12. Index. Bibliography. Suggested readings. Stenhouse. 308 pages. ©2014.
