Accessing the Power of the Poem – July 10 / 6hrs. CPE

Poetry’s Efficiency in Practicing the Reading & Writing Plays 

Come discover research-based strategies for engaging students in close reading and writing about poetry, as we explore lyric forms thematically linked with the world of The Great Gatsby, from poets such as Margaret Atwood, Byron, and Shelley. In this workshop, teachers will experience activities designed to harness how the brain learns and enable students to engage with poetry. Our day culminates in the afternoon with the Tournament of Scholars, a game where competition, close reading, and discussion meet. Margaret Atwood Gwendolyn Brooks Shelley
