"Wiki-Ed Poetry": Transforming Preservice Teachers' Preconceptions about Poetry and Poetry Teaching
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy Volume 55, Number 1, ISSN 1081-3004
This article focuses specifically on teacher candidates' preconceptions about poetry and poetry teaching and how these preconceptions shift as they work through various tasks on a wiki. Through an analysis of their definitions of poetry and ideas about poetry pedagogy captured in online discussion, survey, and interview responses, the authors explore ways in which beginning teachers can develop confidence in teaching poetry. (Contains 3 figures.)
