Poetry of Place: Geography Poetry Corner

 

(Website)

Details:

The Staffordshire Learning Net for Geography is an award-winning website to celebrate the geography of young people and to celebrate good practice between teachers.

Using poetry in geography teaching adds a little spice! Poetry is particularly good at:

developing a sense of place - through descriptive vocabulary of sights, sounds, smells and even tastes
relating the emotions of experiences
relaying polemic opinions about issues
illustrate in words, geographical shapes and patterns

Getting young people to create poems is stimulating too. So we have created a web place to be a poet!
