Key Teaching Approaches
All of the teaching sequences on Poetryline are aimed at developing an appreciation of poetry in children of all ages. The sequences will have a strong emphasis on spending time exploring and responding to high quality poetry collections, learning about the writing process and enablingchildren to see themselves as authors. The work done in the sequences could be enhanced by having poet work alongside children at some stage of the process.
The approaches on the site have been tested in our research and are accompanied by the relevant Teaching Sequences and clips of poets explaining more about how they use these techniques in their own writing and in their work in schools
