Overcoming Poetry-Phobia, Grades K-2

Location: Stanislaus County Office of Education
Date: September 5, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Hosted by: ISS Administration

Do poems scare you? Do you quickly turn the page when a poem shows up in your lesson plans? If so, then this is the workshop for you!

California standards have explicit expectations around students reading poetry. This can be exceptionally challenging for language learners, as issues of vocabulary and language structures are often critical to making meaning of poems.

In this workshop, teachers will learn:

  • how to read a poem in order to make meaning for yourself. 
  • strategies for how to scaffold the meaning-making process for your students
  • strategies for using poetry to teach vocabulary and language structures
