Within The Writing Process:
two-day workshop will introduce teachers experientially to the dynamic
Image-Making poetry process. Participants will begin by making their
own portfolios of hand-painted textured papers. These textured papers
will be used to construct collage images out of which poems will
grow. Specific techniques for drawing rich language from the images
will be modeled. A variety of poetry options will be presented.
Class room facilitation practices, classroom management, mini-lessons,
and integration into the curriculum will be addressed.
workshop provides an excellent introduction to the Image-Making
process for teachers who want to enter the process more simply.
It can also serve as a wonderful follow-up for teachers who have
been previously trained in the Image-Making story process.
