Poetry, argues author Jason Reynolds, “is created to love young adults, and for them to love.” But to love poetry, students must have increased access to it. They must spend more time with it. They must stop being polite, and as poet Eve Mirriam instructs, “Bite in.” This interactive workshop seeks to help secondary ELA teachers and students do just this. Together we will explore three different strategies for incorporating poetry into secondary English classrooms. Participants will have the opportunity to read, discuss, write, and workshop poems that they can then incorporate into their instruction

Writing About Literature: Exploring the Contemporary Essay 
ELA Teacher Learning Series-Virtual Session with Dr. Emily Meixner
Tuesday, March 8 @ 9am-Noon

For more information: https://tpd.tcnj.edu/english-language-arts/

 
While secondary English classrooms are often spaces in which students engage in literary analysis by writing argumentative, thesis-driven essays, there are other ways in which they might write to learn about literature. One traditionally under-used, but valuable genre is the contemporary essay. This workshop will provide a rationale for teaching the contemporary essay, introduce participants to its form, offer example essays for consideration, and develop teachers’ comfort writing in this genre.
