Poetry Genre Study
Transcript of Poetry Genre Study
William Shakespeare (English 1564-1616)
"Shall I compare thee to a Summer's Day?"
Sonnet No. 18
Some Famous Poets...
According to Leggo (1999), there are five ways of deconstructing poetry:
cover a wide variety of literature including poetry, short stories and novels. This informal storytelling style of writing depicts a fictional/nonfictional event or happening on a personal level which relates to the audience.
Why I would teach poetry
Children's Response to Poetry
According to Sipe (1999), children should focus and be taught to respond to literature in a variety of ways...
Poetry is deeply ingrained in many cultures throughout the world.
You may know more about poetry than you think...
Do you recognize any of these lines?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (English 1806-1861)
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."
Sonnet No. 43
Edgar Allan Poe (American 1809-1849)
"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary"
John McCrae (Canadian 1872-1918)
"In Flanders fields the poppies blow"
In Flanders Fields
My working definition of POETRY is...
(I'm using alliteration!) -
Poetry is an art form, perceived by the unique individual for the many.
What kind of individual are you?
Compare/Contrast to other genres -
Berman (1999), conjectures that the qualities of a good poet characterize the qualities of a good teacher. These qualities include -
Giving voice to the unspoken
Connecting heart/mind conversations
Delighting in surprise

My plans for ELL
differentiation of poetry...
Lets take a closer look...
The rich, compact and varied
are what sets poetry apart from other genres.
There are no set rules for punctuation or capitalization.
A composition in verse, characterized by the imaginative treatment of experience, and a condensed use of language.
Funk and Wagnall, 1993, p. 508:
Poetry Origins -
Poetry is derived from the Greek word "poiesis", which means "makng" or "creating".
Why don't you create something new today?
"Illustrating stories or
they have read provides another way to develop English learner's responses to literature"
(Peregoy and Boyle, 2013, p. 334)
"... the oral language development opportunities in this theme study were rich and varied, while optimal oral performance was scaffolded by group support, the chance to work from written scripts, and multiple rehearsals" (Peregoy and Boyle, 2013, p. 145)
Oral and Reading Development for ELL's...
Upholding the NCTE Standards for English Language Arts
Visuals (illustrating poetry)
Group work (dramatizing poetry, small group poetry activities)
"...emergent bilinguals require practice in complex thinking and deserve teachers who engage them in combining ideas to synthasize, generalize, explain, hypothesize, or arrive at some conclusion or interpretation" (Garcia and Kleifgen, 2010, p. 73)
