About this series:

Help your students discover the power and pleasure of writing their own poetry! This two-book set offers poetry-writing exercises trialled in the classroom by experienced secondary teachers who are also practicing poets. The books contain activities that vary widely in form and will appeal to a wide range of students. Included are actual students’ poems to offer budding poets encouragement, guidance and inspiration.

The activities also promote general English skills, as students engage meaningfully with spelling, syntax, grammar and vocabulary and consider carefully each word they use, or don’t use. Writer’s block and poetry phobia will become things of the past for your students when you introduce them to Kickstart Poetry!View
