Read through the chat below to find out how other teachers introduce literary devices. You'll get ideas about exposing students to slam poetry. You'll also find ways to teach poetry as a tool for change as well as teaching it as an artform.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
