Description

This is a book about the power of poetry to speak about the central themes of what it is to be a human being. The first part is an anthology of specially selected poems. The second part provides detailed notes for teachers on how to use these poems in the classroom. The poems in the book are about morality: how we get on, or don't get on, with each other; how we feel when we are alone; the destruction of the world we live in; childhood; celebration; fear; death; and mystery. Sharing these poems helps us to understand ourselves, and to express ourselves. The poems are selected to help to break down the barriers between curriculum subjects, and to be especially useful for religious education and personal, social and moral education. There is a mixture of the classic, the traditional and the new here, but all of the selected poems show the true power of poetry to express feelings about things that matter.
