Back to School in Verse - Resources for your Spanish Classroom

Aug 05

Now that August is here, teachers can be found haunting Back to School sales, stocking up on supplies, at in-service training, honing their teaching techniques and at their computers, looking for resources to enhance instruction.   Whether it’s the perfect image, video or fact sheet, we all like to enrich our textbook lessons with real-world examples and authentic literature. Poetry is a remarkably versatile teaching tool; it can be used to open a lesson, add short readings and lighten the intensity of difficult content.  There is a wealth of contemporary poetry written in Spanish – so much, in fact, that the challenge is to limit yourself to one per lesson.  Here are a few to get you started:
