This article describes a series of projects undertaken with students in a teacher education program. Two courses, one an introduction the role of literature in the teaching of language arts in the elementary school, the other, an introduction to educational technology, provided the context for the exploration of the following questions: l How can we create interest in, and enthusiasm for poetry in student teachers? l What real and contemporary examples of the use of poetic forms can be found in the student teachers' world, the world of popular culture? l How can current technology provide a variety of media for the students to explore poetry or poetic forms of expression? The collaborative projects revitalized students' interest and confidence in the teaching of poetry, developed their skill in developing poetic expression-both in verbal and graphic forms, and developed students' understanding of the relevance and significance of poetry in a culture which often regards this form of expression as archaic and esoteric.
