Have your students ever described poetry as boring or confusing? It is common for them to feel overwhelmed by poetry because it is so different from other styles of writing. In order for students to move past this attitude, they need to feel confident in their ability to read and write poetry. In this blog post, you will learn how you can instill the love of poetry in high school students. I will also share some of my students' favorite activities for teaching poetry in high school.
