Read, Recite, and Write Concrete Poems (Poet's Workshop)
This fun book provides a logical plan for creating concrete poems"a poetic form in which the text creates a shape that mimics its subject. Tips are included for choosing workable topics, arranging words on the page, and making the most of white space.
These materials cover various types of creative writing, includingdescriptive writing, poetry, journaling, and stories.
Simultaneously as concise and in-depth as poems themselves, this Read, Recite and Write series deftly instructs young writers in brainstorming, writing, revising and even orally presenting their own original poems. Writing poetry is an effective way to start children in composing since small amounts of writing can be earnestly focused on. Each photograph-and-cartoon-illustrated book provides examples of a particular poetry style. By following each of the 8 chapters of step-by-step guidance, students learn to understand the poetry type, work through the writing process, and discover how to present their own poem. Poetry Pointers and Literature Links emphasize key terms in bold. These bite-sized texts cut out the unnecessary and direct even unwilling writers. Included are additional links as well as a book list, glossary, and index. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
