Description


Mark Statman, a long time Writer-in-Residence for Teachers & Writers Collaborative, presents in this collection a series of essays and exercises on his own pedagogical approach to the elementary and college writing classroom. There is an emphasis on working with what the students already know, modeling after poets with whom the students are familiar, introducing new poets relevant to curricula and his own aesthetic preferences, and revision. For teachers and students who are eager to read about how a talented and seasoned professional feels about his career, plans lessons, and works in the field with students, Listener in the Snow will be indispensable.
