Celebrate National Poetry Day with this simple but highly effective idea to help students to write their own poem by making careful word choices.
Trevor Millum, Teachit's poet in residence, shares his idea for writing poetry by taking students outside. They use audio or video to record their thoughts and ideas in detail, before choosing the bits they like the most, and then editing them into a poem.
This resource is student-facing and walks students through the process of making careful choices but without any barriers to them getting ideas down on paper.
Could be used on Outdoor Learning Day to get students working in nature!
