Engage Students with the Art of Poetry

The Academy of American Poets hopes to give teachers in all content areas multiple opportunities to integrate poetry into their instruction with Teach This Poem, a new, free weekly email that features a poem along with instructional resources and ideas for activities related to the selection. The new initiative, which begins September 2, expands on the Academy’s existing Poem-a-Day, an online syndicated series featuring previously unpublished poems, which has been running since 2006. The Academy created the new resource to build upon the lesson plans already available on its website and to give teachers a version of Poem-a-Day for students. The new poetry series is best suited for students in grade 4–12. The activities that accompany the poems provide multiple entry points for doing close readings on poems with students. In addition to sending the weekly emails, the Academy will also post and archive the poems and activities on its website. The Academy’s website also provides a useful glossary that introduces poetic terms and devices.
