Children’s Poetry Archive project

I have been involved with a really exciting research and development project with UKLA and the Children's Poetry Archive (http://www.poetryarchive.org/childrensarchive/home.do) this year. The aim of the project was to develop ways of enriching and enlivening children’s and teachers’ experience of poetry and poets. Three leading teachers working in classrooms across the primary age range have planned and taught units of work based around poetry and poets on the Archive. The results, soon to be posted on the  Archive, demonstrate what a rich resource it is for stimulating children’s interest in poetry. We will be presenting a paper at the International Conference in July and I’m hoping to write an article for UKLA soon…
