Poetry of Place
A million dreaming degrees beyond the equator
Ever thought of using poetry in your geography teaching. It adds a little spice! Poetry is particularly good at:
Geographical Poetry Moments- Poems from maps
Step into Cheshire
Any Poem that begins with the line 'Even a map of the place pulls you in' has got to have merit. It made me think about a competition where pupils take a map of anywhere and create a poem from what they see.
Have a look at the Cheshire's Poet Laureate's poem about the Cheshire landscape. Even if this is not your place, why not use it as a stimulus. Draw a map from a poem or write a poem from a map.
Getting young people to create poems is stimulating too. So we have created a web place to be a poet! We want more examples please
