A practicing poet who works in schools shares poetry lessons that ease teachers and students into writing poetry. The fun, friendly exercises include writing riddle poems, fractured fairy tale poems, vegetable-and-me poems, and many others.

It is jam-packed with lively, uplifting poetry and creative ideas to improve not only the art of teaching but also the human connections among students, teachers, and the world around us all.
