Too often the teaching of poetry is divided into the reading of poetry and the writing of poetry. This division is strange and illogical because the two activities are not only linked, but intermeshed. This book attempts to show how indispensable reading poetry is to writing it and vice versa. The text is divided into three sections. The first section contains advice on reading poetry to children at KS1 and KS2. The second section comprises case studies of children responding to poetry and shows how much children can actually understand. The last section is a case study of children writing poems.
