O'Connor has taught English for 18 years in a wide variety of settings, and at every level from sixth grade to college; he currently teaches at a high school outside Chicago. He offers a number of ways that teachers can use students' personal life experiences to help students become less afraid and more comfortable with poetry, see how poetry writing and performance connect their lives, and understand how poetry can enrich their lives. Designed for use in middle and high school classrooms, the text features some 30 professional poetry models and 80-plus poetry models from students in the author's classroom. No subject index.
