Interpreting Poetry in Elementary School Classrooms PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Interpreting Poetry in Elementary School Classrooms free pdf Though there are numerous practitioner books about teaching poetry in schools, there are few which take a scholarly approach to writing and performing poetry at the elementary school level. This volume demonstrates how the social and instructional worlds that children inhabit influence their poetry writing and performances. Drawing on rich vignettes of students from different racial, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds, it describes and analyzes the work of eight to ten year-old U.S. students involved in a month-long poetry unit. It outlines the value of a 'poetic-functional' approach to help children convey a poem's meaning and mood through form, and expresses the need for educators to scaffold children's oral readings and performances over time. Researchers, higher education faculty, and graduate students in elementary education, literacy, and language will find this book essential reading.
