As Educator in Residence at the Academy of American Poets, Dr. Madeleine Fuchs Holzer curates and writes Teach This Poem, a free poetry resource for K-12 educators that helps them create ways to engage children in poetry as a means exploring emotions and ideas.
Each week, a new poem arrives in teachers’ email accompanied by interdisciplinary resources and activities designed to help teachers quickly and easily bring poetry into the classroom. The winner of the 2018 Innovations in Reading Prize given by the National Book Foundation, Teach This Poem reaches over 30,000 educators in classrooms around the world.
In this workshop, Holzer will introduce educators and parents to poetry and resources from Teach this Poem, while challenging them to think of ways in which they might use this powerful resource.
