This is a fantastic course that allowed me to explore my passion for poetry while at the same time enlightening me with different approaches to teaching and responding to poetry within the classroom. I will definitely use the lessons I created for this course in my own classroom!

I am more confident teaching poetry now than I was before this course. The text and class activities have opened my eyes to several talented contemporary poets that I must introduce to my students. This is a very useful course!

Great overview of teaching poetry in the high school English classroom, from ideas for activities and lesson plans to exposure to new poets and anthologies. There's a wealth of resources here for anyone interested in incorporating poetry into instruction or building upon what they already do.

I really enjoyed Poetry in the English Classroom. It was very rewarding to take a long look at what I already do with poetry and what I can do with it after taking this class and focusing on Somers' book and the works of Langston Hughes. The class connected poetry to current topics, which I appreciated. The class also connected poetry to my own district standards which means I can cut out the middle man and not deal with Common Core Standards, which we rarely discuss at my school. Getting kids to talk about it, perform it, or write about it will remain in the forefront of my attention. Teaching poetry across curriculum is doubtful to be a joint effort on my end, but the focus on what the Internet has to offer was beneficial. Thank you!

This course provided a helpful framework to consider new ways to teach poetry, new poems to incorporate in your curriculum, etc. The primary textbook is somewhat outdated, however, and some of the resources referenced within it are no longer in print or easily accessible.
