Issue Theme: "Big Gulp" of Poetry
English Leadership Quarterly, Volume 32, Number 4, April, 2010
April is National Poetry Month, and teachers need little more incentive than that to give poetry a higher profile in classes for all ability levels. Teens have spoken: they like poetry in a variety of genres—contemporary, narrative, funny, relatable. This issue is a “big gulp” of poetry, with Monday-morning ideas, resources, and original poetry that might inspire your own muse. We hope it will also inspire you to include poetry in your curriculum or add new strategies to your poetry teaching toolbox.
