Once of my favorite things about being a writer is connecting teachers, reading specialists, media specialists, and other educators with poetry!
Here are some resources your might enjoy:
30 Painless Classroom Poems – These are my poetry collections published specifically for teachers, with lots of great tips on teaching poetry and with teacher-written activity guides right inside the books.
Teacher resources related to my poetry collections – See the links after each book description to find activity sheets, teaching guides, book trailers, and more.
Poetic Pursuits – I wrote a bunch of articles about writing poetry, and you can find lots of useful tips and insights and examples of various steps of the writing process (like getting ideas or writing titles) or poetic techniques (like metaphor and assonance).
I also speak with educators in person at conferences and professional development events. Please see my Workshops for Educators page for more details.
