What can you do when the mere mention of poetry elicits groans from students? This 90-minute KET professional development workshop provides positive strategies that help students (even the reluctant ones) develop poems while promoting a better understanding of the characteristics and types of poetry. Featuring Starr Lewis of the Kentucky Writing Program and high school teacher Dewey Hensley, the seminar explores such topics as teaching students to distinguish between concrete and abstract language and to use precise descriptive words, comparing the process of revising poetry with the process of revising prose, and assessing poems written by students.

Audience: secondary English/language arts teachers
