Grounded in craft, this book was composed on three premises: That the study and modeling of great poems is integral to understanding poetry and learning to write poems, that scaffolded learning builds a writera€™s and a readera€™s confidence and knowledge base and increases learning, and that teachers and facilitators of poetry can and should build learning environments we call a€œour hearts in a safe place.a€ Each chapter contains an introduction to a main focus, new terms, a model poem, an explication, short prompts heuristic to each chaptera€™s focus, and a model exercise. Student poem samples are included in each chapter. The last chapter discusses syllabi, portfolios and alternate grading. A Hearta€™s Craft differs from other poetrya€ how to booksa€ because it combines art with pedagogy in a unique and effective fashion.This is an important craft element that some of the great poets use in such a way as to make the poem carry the ... my own road to Damascus, I saw a light . . . , a€ an allusion to Saula#39;s conversion to Christianity and his new life in Christ as Paul.
