Reviews

Spellbound brings a wealth of experience by poets and teachers to the art and craft of teaching poetry, the various ways of giving common words the spell...I'm sure that it is going to be immensely useful to peoits and teachers, children of all ages. Edward Hirsch, author of The Essential Poets Glossary and How to Read a Poem Spellbound reverberates with the magic of student voices alongside the stories their teachers tell, illuminating why it is crucial that we make space for this kind of 'serious play' in any and all classrooms. erica kaufman, director, Bard College Institute for Writing & Teaching The wide range of creative activities offerd in Spellbound will surely enable teachers to engage students with poetry by having them meet the blank page with their own imaginations. The poems that result will be a powerful reminder that when you make something with words, new worlds open. For any educator interested in poetry as entry point to classroom lessons, this book is a wonderful new resource. Jennifer Benka, president and executive director, Acadermy of American Poets
