Don't let the wishy-washy language from the website above discourage you: this journal has hardcore quantitative evidence in many of its issues, from approved studies performed at major universities, by doctorate-wielding writing teachers themselves.

 

This journal, which reports the effects of computers on reading and writing and resultant theories and theoretical connections, has been publishing this research since 1983.

 

Writing teachers are not *just* pretty faces.

Sunflower Foundation's curator insight, September 2, 2013 11:43 PM

This is so true. Kibera School for Girls, established by Shining Hope for Communities uses poetry and drama to teach. Our foundation awarded them a grant for drama resources last year. We are delighted that their enchanting little K-Gr.1 girls won first prize in the National Poetry Competition. In this case, poetry grounds not only learning but self esteem and communal pride.

Tara McIlroy's curator insight, October 14, 2013 5:35 PM

When we start to look for it, poetry is all around us, and never leaves us. Applications for learning and teaching are found here without needing to look very far.

 

Olivia Sica's curator insight, October 31, 2014 11:49 AM

I think things like poetry are a positive outlet for people who have emotions they don't know what to do with. If you're feeling overwhelmed, write it down! I can almost guarantee you'll feel better afterwords.
