Poetry in Play (PIP)

Poetry in Play (PIP) 

Whether you are teaching or learning in or outside of the classroom, PIP is a resource for understanding poetry, literary terms, and the devices at play.

Poetry is often the subject students approach with the most apprehension. We hope situating poetry in a more playful and interactive context will lessen students’ anxiety and build their confidence in their own analytical and close reading skills.

Our mission is to provide students with the tools to find their own unique perspectives on poetry and to help them feel confident and excited about studying–the often dreaded unit–poetry.

We hope our initiative inspires others to contribute and participate in our Poetry in Play project. E-mail poetryinplay@gmail.com for questions, contributions or ideas.
