Description: In response to a lack of source works for wide-ranging approaches to teaching poetry, award-winning poet Joshua Marie Wilkinson has gathered ninety-nine micro-essays for poets, critics, and scholars who teach and for students who wish to learn about the many ways poets think about how a poem comes alive from within-and beyond-a classroom. Not narrowly concerned with how toreadpoetry or how towritepoetry, by virtue of their central concern withteachingpoetry, the essays in this fresh and innovative volume address both reading and writing and give teachers and students useful tools for the classroom and beyond. Divided into four sections-"Reflections / Poetics," "Exercises / Praxis," "New Approaches to Poetry Courses and Methodology," and "Talks / Directives"-Poets on Teachingprovides practical, intelligent advice. "Reflections / Poetics" encompasses the most expansive approaches to teaching poetry, where poets reflect variously on what teachers can cultivate in their classrooms. "Exercises / Praxis" consists of hands-on approaches to reading and, especially,writingpoems. "New Approaches to Poetry Courses and Methodology" features essays on rethinking specific courses, offering new ideas for course design and pedagogy. "Talks / Directives" contains a series of more informal and conversational discussions geared toward becoming a stronger reader, writer, teacher, and student of poetry.Poets on Teachingwill be required reading for new and experienced teachers alike.
