In response to Arleen's engaging poetry reading on Wednesday, I found this article about poetry. It claims that poems convey "a maximum amount of thought and feeling in the fewest and most carefully chosen words."
"When you immerse your students in rich, lively poetry, you introduce them to intense, concise, skillfully crafted language".
This article claims that poetry should be included as an integral part of the language and literacy curriculum.
Take a look and see what you think.
