How to Teach Kids to Love Poetry (Even If You Don't) - Free Webinar from Laura Candler

Why wait until April to teach poetry? Fall is the perfect time because your students can enjoy poetry all year long! In this webinar, I'll walk you through a complete poetry unit, step-by-step. After you implement these lessons, you'll be amazed at how quickly your students are able to read, write, and understand poetry... and even more surprised to discover how much your students come to love poetry, too! These lessons are best for upper elementary students, but many can be adapted for other ages. Even if you haven't enjoyed teaching poetry in the past, you might find yourself looking forward to your next poetry unit! Download the free webinar handouts here, and then click HERE to register.
