Teaching Poetry

Resources for Teachers

Using poetry in a classroom is a great way to expose students to imagery, rhythm, rhyme, metaphors, personification, and a variety of other literary devices. Some teachers and students shy away from poetry because they are unsure how to use it or what it should look like, but the joy of poetry is the ability to express yourself in a creative way. While some poetic forms have specific rules to follow, poetry is much more than a formula. It’s a safe way for students to share their emotions and experiences.
