A Note Slipped Under the Door
Teaching from Poems We Love
How do we read a poem? What can we teach from a poem we love? How can we name what poets do in order to inform our writing, our teaching?
In their staff development work with teachers, Nick Flynn and Shirley McPhillips have often encountered these and similar questions. This book invites preservice and inservice teachers, staff developers—anyone who wants to make a lasting place for poetry in their own and their students' lives—into many of these same primary through middle school classrooms for an up-close look at several thoughtful, rigorous, poetry inquiries.
