Poetry in the Classroom

The News From Poems Winter
The News From Poems River
I’ve adapted these columns specifically for educators who want to incorporate writing by Vermont authors into their lesson plans. Each of these units contains a poem by a Vermont writer, accompanied by the original column, along with an additional section offering suggestions to inspire students’ writing. Instructors searching for more ideas about bringing the poems and/or the columns into the classroom are encouraged to contact me.
