Recommended Book:
Alice Fogel’s Strange Terrain: A Poetry Handbook for the Reluctant Reader

Alice’s step by step  process to use to introduce poetry to students:
1.    Shape: poems look different on the page
2.    Words: poems are made up of words
3.    Sound: poems make sounds out of their words, separate from what the words “say”
4.    Images: poems can make you see things that aren’t there
5.    Emotions: poems can make you feel things
6.    Thought: poems can make you think
7.    Literary devices: poems use some of the same ploys as prose
8.    Unknowing: poems can mystify you

Rodger Martin’s technique for Memorizing

Using images to aid recall

o   Visualizing each line of the poem
o   Students create pictures in their head
o   Students draw visual “cue cards” as part of the memorization process
o   This adds another layer of understanding of the work
