William Stafford's poetry is much loved by high school teachers for its accessibility to students and its inspiration prompting us to see the world with fresh eyes. Two high school teachers share ideas for how to use Stafford's poetry with students in new ways. A social studies teacher combines poetry with google trips to teach about the Tillamook burn, Celilo falls, nuclear testing, and a variety of other regional, historic, and ecologically important places and events. An English teacher shares using Stafford's poetry to teach the themes of coming of age and the cycle of redemption through one poem a week for an entire term. Guests themselves will read and write during the workshop as well. For more information, contact the library at 503 644-2197 or visit the website at www.beavertonlibrary.org.
