Virtual Summer Poetry Teachers Institute
Virtual Summer Poetry Teachers Institute
Poetry Foundation
Tue, July 14, 2020 @ 10:00 AM — Thu, July 16, 2020 @ 12:30 PM (CDT)
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

Get inspired this summer! This July, the Poetry Foundation will host its fifth annual Summer Poetry Teachers Institute online July 14-16. This free, two-and-a-half-day event will include tailored seminars, hands-on workshops, and small break-out sessions all delivered through Zoom. You’ll join a learning community of educators from across the country, and possibly the world, to study and discuss poetry with renowned practitioners and expert teachers. Together, you’ll develop lesson plans to bring back to your classroom.


WHAT’S DIFFERENT THIS YEAR?

The program will be entirely online with seminars and workshops targeted toward K-8th or 9th-Community College teachers. Pending availability, attendees can choose between two tiers, Haiku and Sonnet. Both tiers include seminars and workshops, while the Sonnet tier also includes facilitated breakout sessions. The Sonnet tier is limited to 90 participants.


Seminars will be pre-recorded followed by a live Q&A session, and workshops will be pre-recorded with concurrent live moderated Q&A. Breakout sessions will occur in live Zoom rooms, organized according to grade-specific discussions.


WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

Teachers of all grades, K-12 and community college instructors are encouraged to apply. International registrants are welcome to join at the scheduled session times (sessions are in Central Daylight Time/CDT and in English). We welcome new and experienced teachers: both those who enjoy teaching poetry and those who have struggled with it. We also welcome back previous attendees. We ask that all registrants are available and commit to participate in all sessions offered in their tier.
