Join Lee & Low Books and Share My Lesson for a webinar on how to use multicultural children’s poetry to inspire poetry appreciation.


Does your National Poetry Month reflect our nation? Learn how to find and use multicultural and diverse poetry in your classroom! Poetry’s format and economy of words make it engaging and accessible for children, reluctant readers, and English Language Learners. Now, you can inspire a deeper joy for reading and writing poetry by helping children discover themselves and learn about others in the lines and stanzas. When children study poets from diverse backgrounds, they will see how professional poets mine their own cultures and experiences to create meaningful art. We will show you where to find award-winning, culturally responsive poetry to serve your students’ demographics and interests. This session will also share culturally responsive instruction strategies and resources for studying multicultural poetry and authors from diverse backgrounds. At the end of the presentation, you will have strategies you can apply immediately to your classroom to inspire a love for poetry and help children tap their own cultures and experiences to create meaningful poetry. Get ready for inspiring an appreciation for verse and encouraging your students to write poetry themselves!


Available for one-hour of PD credit.
