Poetry for teachers offers you a moment to sit and reflect. This micro PD helps you engage with poetry and to consider how poetry can help us see our job and make it through the day with and through poetry. You don't need to have studied poetry or even enjoyed poetry before, just take a moment to use this medium to reflect on yourself and your practice and hopefully enjoy the process.
You will learn:
- To read and interpret six poems and reflect on your experiences and practice through them.
- To develop in your appreciation of poetry as a form and consider how it can be used to support you and create space for reflection.
- Be encouraged to further your engagement with poetry and consider how it can be a source of inspiration, solace or joy.
