Poetry for STAAR Workshop
  • Are you looking for enjoyable, concrete ways to weave reading and writing together in one class period?
  • How do you teach students to joyfully read, analyze, and write poems?
  • And how can poetry lessons give a leg-up to your STAAR reading and writing scores?
Join us for the Poetry for STAAR Workshop with
Gretchen Bernabei in Houston
on Thursday, February 13.

Gretchen Bernabei and Laura Van Prooyen have put together a wonderful new process to “pop the hood” on a poem to discover what makes it work, using text structures to unlock the engine of a poem.

Teachers will participate in the modeled lessons, reading and re-reading a poem closely, to identify the author’s craft and text structure of the poem, and to leverage what they have learned to write their own evocative poems. 

All participants will receive a copy of Text Structures from Poetry, with 50 classroom-ready lessons, as well as access to a TEKS alignment document.
