Hey all Logic here.
for those that don't know, I'm currently working on my Ph.D in Education, one of my areas of study is a comprehensive look at ways and strategies to meld poetry and K-12 education. As a matter of fact this semester I am teaching a class to pre-service teachers called Reading Writing & Teaching Poetry. THe class is designed to give the next generation of teachers better ammunition to teach poetry to the millennials.
That being said, I know a lot of us are teaching various poetry classes to various constituencies. Some are MFA's teaching grads students, some are teaching undergrads, some are teaching K-12. I thought it may be a good idea to have a space here, where we discuss the different texts we a re using, the different methods we are using, and the different assignments, lesson plans, syllabi, or anything else that we can do as a community to help each other out.
Just talking to different poets on facebook and at WOW I realize there are quite a few of us out there, and I think it could be helpful to us and to our students to share some info. I think it may also be interesting to see how we can collectively push the conversation.
Anyone interested in sharing ... let me know....
