12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Jane Schneeloch on May 30, 1998
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After teaching poetry for 31 years and collecting books, folders, and boxes full of ideas about how to get reluctant students to try writing poetry, one of our new teachers gave me her copy of _The Poet's Pen_. I immediately went to the pink post-it notes she had used to mark activities she had used successfully. What a find!
I have used several of the activites listed in the book,and found that the students not only enjoyed them, but they produced some of the most outstanding poetry I have seen from students--and I have seen a lot of student poetry. Needless to say, I have now purchased my own copy and have my own post-it notes on particular pages.
Each lesson is clear and complete, as well as being able to be adapted for different environments. I particulary liked the Poetry Poker. I keep my bag of words handy where students who feel the call to write a poem can find them.
Thank you, Ms. Lies, for showing this old dog some new tricks.

Format: Paperback
I came about this book by accident, a fortunate coincidence. It is a mainstay for teaching poetry in my high school writing classes. In fact, it is the gift I choose to present to my student teachers as they prepare to lauch their careers.

Format: Paperback
As a former student of Betty Lies, and a current graduate student in literature, I encourage you to explore this book. I still return to her suggestions on overcoming writers' block, and have often thought back to her teaching methods as I encounter the turbulence of writing. As she once said to me, writing can be like crawling on your hands and knees among broken glass and coffee grounds, but the rewards are immeasurable. Invest in this book.
