This week’s resource (Carter, 2014), on poetry writing in the classroom, discusses the different types of poems and activities to help each student better understand each type of poem. It also discusses the importance of a poetry writing workshop using thinking time, talking time, brainstorming time, writing time, and sharing time. The creation of these workshops is explained further in the introduction as well as on pages 58-70. Your paper must:
evaluate the learning benefits of poetry activities for student success in poetry writing.
create a poetry writing workshop, for use in the classroom, to help guide students with poetry writing that includes a draft plan for further extending poetry writing activities in the classroom.
Submit a paper that is 3-4 pages in length exclusive of the reference page, double-spaced, using 12-point Times New Roman font.
