  • How can a teacher be prepared to discuss more about poets’ lives and times in history, which both deeply impact their poetry?
  • Discuss how wonder is the beginning of all learning and how this is connected to questioning.
  • Discuss how mastery of the tools needed for the art of poetry can be playful. Play a rhyming game together.
