Publisher Description:

“I dwell in Possibility— A fairer House than Prose—” While we think of poetry as the best words in the best order, we sometimes forget how important its poetic or metaphoric thinking is to various subjects such as writing, speaking, business, and science.

The Art of Poetry is an excellent middle or high school curriculum that teaches the practice of reading a poem closely and absorbing its beauty.

The Art of Poetry Teacher’s Edition is a valuable resource for teachers that includes the entire content of The Art of Poetry Student Edition and an answer key, as well as detailed and fascinating explications of 39 poems. The introduction for the teacher offers teaching tips and suggestions. Thorough appendices include a poetry timeline, quizzes for each chapter, and a cumulative book quiz.

See our Support tab above for schedule recommendations and the complimentary audio files that feature the author, Christine Perrin, and her husband, Dr. Christopher Perrin, reading the poems aloud.

Category Description for Art of Poetry:

This comprehensive course explores the depth and breadth of poetry, covering topics such as image, metaphor, symbols, words, sound, rhythm, shape, and tone. It also includes instruction in the formal history of poetry (form, movement, genres, structure, open verse, and narrative), and ends with application (poetry groups, journaling, keeping a notebook, finding mentors). Each of the fifteen chapters in the Student Book examines a topic, conducts an analytical reading of a given poem, and expects the student do likewise through a number of poems aided by a set of exploratory questions. Chapters finish up with a list of defined vocabulary words, plus a page of activities that give students many different opportunities to explore the use of poetry in more hands-on and practical ways. The Teacher Edition is a fleshed-out version of the student book. All student pages are included in the teacher's edition, the layout alternating between the student chapter and the corresponding section of teacher pages. The Package includes the Teacher Edition, Student Book, and DVDs. Zach

Do I need both the teacher's guide and student book?
User on Feb 17, 2022
BEST ANSWER: We bought just the teacher's guide and use it as a read together resource. My sister in law has the whole set though, so I think both options work well.
