Summary

In this special journal issue, ten teachers who have consistently produced award-winning student writers share their thoughts on the teaching of poetry. The first article provides reminiscences of student poets taught by one teacher and provides a guide for use in the close reading and analysis of poetry. The second article suggests techniques for teaching poetry and provides tips for sharing and evaluating student poems. The third article discusses the "show, don't tell" method of teaching poetry, while the fourth article offers six assignments designed to familiarize students with the notion of "image." The fifth article describes an integrated American history-American literature course and explains how it helped students to produce creative works, while the sixth explains how poetry writing can be incorporated into other units of study. The seventh article offers suggestions for helping students become aware of details in their writing, and the eighth discusses poetry as a process. The ninth article details a creative writing workshop that emphasizes individualized writing, and the last explains how the English department at Evanston (Illinois) Township High School has maintained a high level of excellence in its creative writing program. The journal contains many examples of student poetry. (FL)
