Two world re-known speakers and authors spent the day telling teachers from several school districts about the benefits of using poetry in their dual language classes. Alma Flor Ada and F.Isabel Campoy are published Spanish children’s poetry authors and believe in the impact it has on student’s success.

“This is one of the skills that is tested on the STAAR, so it is really important that students have a good understanding of poetry … and what goes into writing a poem,” said Sharon Mullen of Santillana USA Publishing.

Both authors met with teachers, including some from Harlandale ISD, on March 25 at the Boggess Center.

“Poetry is an area that teachers need a lot of support in, especially in Spanish, and so these two authors are a great way to incorporate that into the classroom,” commented Veronica Alvarez, Bilingual Coordinator for HISD.
