Verse Writing in Schools presents methods in creative writing that can be used in English classes in the same way as a grammar textbook. The book focuses on the teaching and appreciation of poems to children new to poetry writing. The book is organized into 3 chapters discussing the intricacies of teaching poetry writing to children. The first chapter deals with problems facing the teacher when dealing with children who does not have any background in verse writing and poetry. It then discusses, in Chapter 2, what should be done once the children become accustomed to writing poetry, to prevent them from writing lifeless verses. The last chapter explores the qualities, themes, social, and psychological predisposition of children as reflected in their works. Educators, teachers, and students studying English language education courses will find this book an interesting reference.
