Poetry is often seen as the ‘Cinderella’ of the literacy curriculum. The evening will be spent exploring an alphabet of poetry forms (using Alan’s Alphabet of Poetry Forms ebook).

Although poetry is clearly more than just an exploration of forms, this approach does help to develop a love of language. Alan will include:

  1. Rhyming poetry
  2. Syllabic poetry
  3. Historical poetic forms – including Hendecasyllabic and Kennings
  4. Ballads
  5. Alphabet-based poetry games

Participants are guaranteed to leave with a plethora of ideas for writing poetry in the classroom. A suggested ‘further reading-list’ will be provided at the end of the evening.

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL LEAVE WITH A VAST RANGE OF PRACTICAL IDEAS
