Yes, indeed, everyone can be a poet! Poetry is not the elusive and impractical exercise most of us think. It is just a natural outlet of emotions, thoughts, experiences and more. This unique book is akin to attending a teaching resource workshop where the teacher-poet is enthusiastic to share his experience and learning about the inventive, writing process and skills of poetry. The straightforward and handy techniques used in this unpretentious book, bring out the natural poet in all of us. The volume offers tools, practice, and examples. Dotted with exercises, materials in this book are invaluable for classroom teaching. Who says children cannot be trained to write poetry? Sarika Singh's well-structured, undemanding, encouraging and inspiring tutorial, is like a series of stepping stones for all those who have imagined putting pen to paper to articulate a sentiment. Goods teaching should demonstrate, not inform or advise. That principle in practise, is what makes this volume extraordinary. Poetry writing never seemed so simple!

Many writing teachers are searching for a better way to turn student writing into teaching and learning opportunities without being crushed under the weight of student papers. This book introduces a rubric designed by the National Writing Project--the Analytic Writing Continuum (AWC)--that is making its way into classrooms across the country at all grade levels. The authors use sample student writing and multiple classroom scenarios to illustrate how teachers have adapted this flexible tool to meet the needs of their students, including using the AWC to teach revision, give feedback, direct peer-to-peer response groups, and serve as a formative assessment guide. This resource also discusses how to set up a local scoring session and how to use the AWC in professional development.

The author explores the idea of creativity in education as it relates to being spontaneous, open, confident, experienced, and familiar.

The book provides an exciting mix of original anecdotes, literature review, and insightful analysis.
