Poetry Month

"Poetry through the Ages" is a phenomenal resource for teachers and scholars. "Poetry through the Ages" is one of the "exhibits" sponsored by WebExhibits. The connections and how this site operates is explained on the "about" page.

"Poetry through the Ages" is very comprehensive. The opening page provides two ways to navigate the website. One can follow a hypertext model via the "nodes" or a more linear path that the user finds on the left. Perhaps the teacher may want to visit the "About" link to gain access to the "Teacher Guides." Exploring the nodes path or the linear path is inspiring and great food for thought as teachers consider what they want to do with poetry in April or any other month. This is a fabulous site to use as a base for a poetry project/research paper for our scholars. They have choice and good resources to complete a very comprehensive poetry project. Be prepared to spend a good deal of time wandering about and learning.
