Poetryclass & Poetry Zone September 7, 2007

Posted by admin in : English/Literacy , trackback

It’s easy to forget about sites like this one as it’s been around for a few years now. poetryclass was created by the Poetry Society using funding from the DfES. It’s an excellent resource that provides support and ideas for teachers who want to teach about poetry in a fun, dynamic and creative way.

There’s lots of lesson plans on the website that have been created by poets with considerable experience of working in schools as well as a wonderful ‘A Poem a Term’ resource written by Roger Stevens.

[Talking of Roger Stevens… Have you visited his Poetry Zone website? It contains lots of useful resources for teachers, interviews with top poets and provides a showcase of students’ work – http://www.poetryzone.co.uk/]
