Poetry Class: taking the fear out of teaching poetry

As I gear up to teach poetry in Arlington (VA) elementary schools over the next few months, I've stumbled across a fantastic resource for anyone who is interested in teaching poetry. PoetryClass says it is "taking the fear out of teaching poetry."

While I've not had the chance to thoroughly peruse the site, a cursory look around spotted a listing of lesson plan ideas.

I'll be teaching eleven workshops. Students range in age from 1st thru 5th grades, so I'm looking at a wide range of skill levels. If you've taught poetry to young-unz, I'd love to hear about lesson plans that worked for you!
