The Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching
Franconia, New Hampshire, United States
Come gather with other teachers of writing and learn how to effectively teach poetry in the classroom.
The Conference on Poetry and Teaching is a unique opportunity for teachers to work closely with both their peers and with a team of illustrious poets who have particular expertise in working with teachers at all levels: K–12, graduate and undergraduate, and nontraditional and community-based instructors. Over the course of 4½ days, faculty poets share specific, hands-on techniques for teaching poetry. The emphasis is on the reading-conversation-writing-revision cycle, and our teaching approach aligns with the Common Core anchor standards for reading and writing. Graduate-level credits are available and a certificate of completion includes 33 hours of continuing education credit.
