TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students poetry anthologies written by contemporary poets in order for them to explore the world of poetry!
We know that the home environment of students, not sometimes but always, has an impact on the classroom. My students attend a school with a long history, and they are faced with challenges at home and in their communities that should not have to follow them into their school environments. However, it is important that when they are at school, the problems from home, like lack of resources, have no impact on their academic abilities and outcomes.
My students are amazing young people who deserve a quality education with all the benefits associated with one!
For students who have had little to no poetry exposure during their educational experience, the study of poetry can be considered intimidating and even daunting. However, students enrolled in AP Literature and Composition will have three poetry units throughout the course. They must be able to analyze poetry, and one of the things that I know about poetry is the best way to start understanding it is to jump in and read!
The donations to this project will help to improve my students understanding, love, and competency with poetry!
Through the use of these poetry anthologies written by contemporary author's, my students will be able to relax when confronted with a poet and learn to examine them like they examine short stories and novels. We will use these anthologies to aide us in dissecting poems and allow students to feel comfortable with approaching a poem and even eventually teaching a poem to their classmates. I truly need your support to make our poetry unit a reality! Thanks!
