Word Choice Matters: Teaching Children through the Poetic Process to Write What They Mean

$29.95

Heidi Simmons expertly shows us how to celebrate the magic of poetry while solving the mystery of how to help young writers express themselves poetically. This is a gradual release plan that will make sense to both teachers and students—and will work! This longtime educator and passionate teacher of poetry guides us step-by-step through eight poetry lessons, each with multiple sessions that bring elements of word choice in poetry to life within and beyond the classroom. Every session shows us how to: say it, show it, discover it, note it, brave it, share it, and continue it. Busy teachers will also appreciate the time-saving classroom-ready resources, and clearly identified lists of materials and procedures. Best of all are the many poems crafted by children that demonstrate not just a particular word choice concept, but exemplify such inspired writing that you will want your students to experience these same poetic opportunities.
