Poetry in Literature for Youth offers teachers, librarians, parents, and students with an instrumental guide for incorporating all forms of poetry into the curriculum. More than 900 annotated entries provide descriptions of books and other resources, including anthologies, classics, various poetry formats, poetry novels, multicultural poetry, performance poetry, teen poetry, poet biographies, and curriculum connections. Educators, who are often unaware of the poetry resources available-particularly for young adults-will welcome this book with open arms. Lists for building a core poetry collection, along with resources for teaching poetry criticism and writing, electronic poetry resources, booktalks, classroom activities, and lesson plans complement this guide. Author, Geographic, Grade, Subject, and Title indexes are also included. For anyone interested in knowing more about poetry in literature, this is an indispensable guide.
This annotated bibliography, written for educators, lists general anthologies, classics, poetry formats, novels in verse, performance poetry, multicultural books, biographies, books by children and teens, and writing guides for students in elementary through high school. Seven chapters list books that can be integrated into the arts, language arts, health, math, science, social studies, and literature. Annotations include publication information, grade levels, price, and descriptions. Professional resources, including books, articles, and ERIC documents are listed, along with electronic resources and titles that should be in a core collection. Indexes are separated by title, subject, author, and grade.
