Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 26, 2015 12:37 PM

To teach writing you need to write.  To teach poetry, write poetry.  If you find yourself in the remarkably important position of teaching kids, include poetry in your curriculum (even if you have to sneak it in)!


This video introduces a free course offered on UDEMY, a popular online teaching platform.  The course is video driven. Experiment and experience at your own pace.   (Why not?)

Although we believe that students need to develop the skills necessary to prepare a thoughtful, well-written, inquiry-driven research paper, our students have many other engaging product options. They can acquire subject knowledge and develop transferable information literacy and technology skills through a variety of creative activities. The following is a list of some alternative assessments for your class. For any research product or response to literature, consider how we might offer video, digital storytelling and publishing, art, drama, or presentation as an option for students to creatively communicate/share/publish/broadcast the knowledge they have gained.

Is Slam Poetry Underrated?

Is Slam Poetry Underrated? | Poetry Writing | Scoop.it
Slam poetry is the godfather of creative writing. It is the first bite into a brand new pack of gum. It is the moment where you walk into an air-conditioned house on a disgustingly humid day.
