VOYA - Christine Sanderson
Poetry is the subject of the eighth volume in the Literature for Youth Series, a collection of subject-specific annotated bibliographies. This book offers more than nine hundred entries documenting poems by format and subject. There are chapters for performance poetry, poet biographies, writing guides, resources for teachers, electronic resources, and building a poetry collection. Seven chapters are devoted to poetry that pertains to school curriculum subject areas of art, language arts, health, mathematics, science, social studies, and literature. According to Leeper, in writing this volume she hoped to "expose educators to the wealth of poetry books written for children and teens within the last twenty-plus years.o Unlike earlier volumes in this series, this book does not deal with a subject's treatment in literature. Rather, its focus is on literature itself, specifically on poetry appropriate for young people. The number of poetry books is daunting, but Leeper does a good job of making choices about what to include using a topical approach. There is a balance of older works, for example Longfellow's "The Children's Hour," and quite contemporary concepts such as poetry slams, including Gary Mex Glazner's Poetry Slam: The Competitive Art of Performance Poetry (Manic D Press, 2000). Of particular interest to teachers might be the chapters linking poetry to school subjects for help in teaching writing across the curriculum. Annotations include not only grade and age level but also indicate works that are a match for mature teen audiences. The book is a good choice for teachers and school libraries.
School Library Journal
Despite its bland and somewhat misleading cover (which only shows young children), this title is packed with innovative ways to integrate poetry into the K-12 curriculum. Title, subject, grade, and author indexes coupled with chapters organized by subject area provide multiple points of entry into more than 900 annotations of poetry books. Appendixes include a listing of electronic resources and "Building a Core Poetry Collection in Your School Library." Whether organizing a poetry slam, searching for a novel in verse, or looking for a fresh way to bolster a math lesson, this volume will guide the way.-Jill Heritage Maza, Greenwich High School, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
