Poetry: pleasure, performance, potential – Make an impact in reading and writing

Would you like a poetry-rich classroom? Would you like to discover
exciting ways of introducing poetry to your pupils? Would you like to
develop your understanding of ways in which poetry encounters can
unlock and enhance children’s potential as readers and writers? This
participative course is packed with ideas for bringing the pleasure of
poetry to your classroom and unleashing the inner poet lurking inside.

Frequently underrepresented in book collections, and in English lessons in primary classrooms, poetry is a powerhouse for developing reading
comprehension. The richly allusive, compressed language of poetry offers opportunities for multilayered reading and interpretation. Poetry can also be fun, light, engaging, unlocking the reading for some children who find it hard to sustain interest in longer texts. Often combined with humour with its potential for language play it can captivate and entertain, developing language
by stealth.
