Author: Ken Watson    Publisher: Phoenix Education

This photocopiable resource provides teachers with a range of poetry suitable for middle secondary years, and a wealth of suggestions and approaches for teaching the poems. Two Australian poets, Jeff Guess and Kris Hemensley, have provided drafts of their poems, enabling students to study the ways in which poets revise and perfect their work. Jeff Guess has also provided many suggestions for poetry-writing workshops. A section on performance poetry suggests ways in which students, in groups, can prepare poems for oral presentation.
