Grow a Poem with Sherryl Clark
Grow a poem (or ten) in your classroom. Studies show that poetry stimulates language use in the classroom like no other activity. Reading and writing poems gives students the gift of imagery and metaphor, promotes confidence, and brings language to their fingertips. Great poems and simple exercises that can be completed in a short time excite and inspire.
In this two hour session teacher and award winning author Sherryl Clark will introduce you to helpful poetry resources, provide you with a range of starting points and more advanced options. This professional development opportunity is designed for both primary and secondary teachers and anyone wanting to encourage poetry writing and reading in young people.
