Life's literacy lessons : poems for teachers by Steven L Layne( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of poems was written to honor literacy educators for all that they do. The collection's author has gathered 40 of his favorite poems about literacy and teaching--the poems range from serious to hilarious as they take poetic license with the stuff of teachers' daily lives: beginning readers; grammar; spelling; handwriting; and composition instruction; literacy instruction; adolescent literacy issues; reading aloud; and standards and teachers. Each poem in the collection is accompanied by a "story behind the poem," so that readers can understand the poem's inspiration. It is hoped that the collection can inspire classroom teachers at all grade levels and those in higher education who train new teachers. (Nka)
