01/4/2013

Whether we call it critical literacy, problem solving, or meaning making, being able to read and analyze with precision and judgment empowers students in all academic courses. In this chapter, author Eileen Murphy Buckley demonstrates how poetry provides an opportunity to teach close reading skills within one class setting, to give students practice in making claims and supporting them through oral arguments, and to shape evidence-based writing. The poems offered as examples provide a wealth of cross-disciplinary opportunities for teaching and learning. In addition to the text, you can access an extended audio interview with the author in which she discusses some of these teaching and learning opportunities. Read on.
