˝This book provides a wealth of ideas for using poetry in the language classroom. It will be an invaluable source of inspiration for teachers who wish to start using poetry with their students, as well as for those already convinced of its value to learners of English.
The ideas range from using poems as a starting point for roleplay, writing and discussion, to reading literature as an end in itself. They can be adapted for use with students from low-intermediate to advanced level.
The Inward Ear is ideal for both language and literature students; contains numerous examples of suitable poems; presents a wide variety of motivating activities; provides step-by-step instructions on how to exploit poetry.˝
