This practical workshop introduces Sheena and Louise’s new book The Poetry Book.
When students write poetry, it enriches their language and vocabulary, encourages creative thinking and develops reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.
All students benefit from writing poetry but ‘at risk’ and reluctant writers can experience particular success from the creative but scaffolded nature of poetry.
The workshop will cover:
the benefits of teaching poetry to support all learners
an overview of the chapters, including takeaway strategies, ideas, and activities.
