Focus on one poet for the entire school year. Read his or her poems aloud; one per week is fine, along with an open invitation to reread favorites. Don’t analyze the poem to death; simply read it and enjoy it. Occasionally allow students to illustrate a poem. Once per term, assign a poem to be memorized and recited. In this way your students will learn to enjoy poetry and will become personally familiar with several poets’ styles. Our Enjoy the Poems series includes all of the above and makes it simple to linger with a poet for an enjoyable school year.
