Igniting an Interest in Teaching and Writing Poetry

For Classroom Teachers and Home-Schooling Parents

"Igniting the Poetry Flame" shows how to develop and encourage the love of poetry, including strategies for teaching it, and suggestions for making poetry a meaningful part of a student's life. It is a practical, easy-to-follow, field-tested guide for teachers to use at all grade levels and for all abilities, and gives teachers and home-schooling parents techniques for teaching poetry to their students.

Chapters offer purposes, detailed biographical information, specific poetic structures, and classroom student tasks. Each lesson is illustrated with examples of original student poems. There is a Resource List, Bibliography, and Glossary of Literary Terms. A final student activity includes directions for making an anthology of their poems.


"Igniting the Poetry Flame" is the first book in a three-volume series. Other books in the series are: "Stoking the Poetry Flame" and "Keeping the Flame Alive." The series seeks to ignite and invigorate the creative poetic spark in students.


Each book in the series can be used by itself as a stand-alone text or with the other books in the series. They can be adapted for use in elementary, middle, or high school language arts classes by English and other teachers at all grade levels, and for students of varying abilities. Parents will also find the books valuable for their home-schooled children.
