A four-week summer seminar for fifteen K-12 teachers to investigate poetry from multiple perspectives.

"Say Something Wonderful: Teaching the Pleasures of Poetry," a four-week summer seminar hosted by DePaul University, invites K-12 teachers to investigate the pleasures of poetry from a variety of critical, historical, and aesthetic perspectives. The primary texts include classical, English, and American works, with an emphasis on poems that can be taught at multiple grade levels; teachers will deepen and broaden their knowledge of poems, poets, and poetic forms, and they will hone their skills as close readers and oral performers of poetry. Building on successes in 2003, 2005, and 2007, the seminar will again equip its participants to link, in their own classes, instruction and delight.
