Celebrate National Poetry Month With ILA Resources

By Clare Maloney
 | Apr 25, 2017

young boy writingPoetry is one of the most evocative, creative forms of expression. However, some students struggle to find the meaning behind poems, grasping for concrete answers from work that is meant to stir up a myriad of interpretations and images.

Help your students experience the satisfaction in finding their own meaning with these resources and tips from ILA on how to get them excited about poetry.

National Poetry Month is recognized in the United States throughout the month of April. Follow @ILAToday on Twitter and tell us what you’re doing to celebrate.

Clare Maloney is an intern at the International Literacy Association. She is currently seeking a BA in English from the University of Delaware.
