A one-semester or yearlong course for students in grades 7-12
“I dwell in Possibility— A fairer House than Prose—” While we think of poetry as the best words in the best order, we sometimes forget how important its poetic or metaphoric thinking is to various subjects such as writing, speaking, business, and science.
The Art of Poetry is an excellent middle or high school curriculum that teaches the practice of reading a poem closely and absorbing its beauty.
The Art of Poetry Teacher’s Edition is a valuable resource for teachers that includes the entire content of The Art of Poetry Student Edition and an answer key, as well as detailed and fascinating explications of 39 poems. The introduction for the teacher offers teaching tips and suggestions. Thorough appendices include a poetry timeline, quizzes for each chapter, and a cumulative book quiz.
See our Support tab above for schedule recommendations and the complimentary audio files that feature the author, Christine Perrin, and her husband, Dr. Christopher Perrin, reading the poems aloud.
