Abstract

This project has been designed for the English department head or English co-ordinator who is presently or soon will be working with teachers in the teaching of poetry. The inservice package has been designed to serve as an instructional base on which the inservice leader can build or adapt to meet his or her specific needs. The intention is not to solve all the problems or offer solutions to all problems in the teaching of poetry, but to present practical suggestions in four areas of most concern to teachers. They are, teacher knowledge, selection of poetry for students, teacher freedom and autonomy in the classroom, and methods and techniques for introducing poetry. -- The appendix contains several sections that would be of interest to teachers. In particular, the index of poetry offers a list of readily available poems and chronological dating of poets; and the suggested articles, books on poetry and about poetry, and specific poems for junior high school may be of assistance in compiling teacher personal poetry files.
