The 17 chapters discuss the following topics: (1) teaching poetry in the schools; (2) relating personal memories in poetry; (3) writing poems about animals; (4) using the chant; (5) writing poems collaboratively; (6) candor and innocence; (7) energy in poetry; (8) poems with the element of surprise; (9) rhythm, rhyme, and other sounds; (10) poetic "moves" or play with meaning; (11) creating poetry with an emphasis on factual details; (12) metaphor and surreal language; (13) concision, shapeliness, and understatement; (14) adult-like thought and feeling in children's poetry; (15) empathy; (16) other methods to use in writing poetry; and (17) evaluating children's poetry. The appendix contains eight poems by such poets as Denise Levertov and William Carlos Williams. (El)
