Research: Responding to Poetry

Question: Do students know how to respond to poetry?

Answer: “Found that few students reflect on what they do when they respond to a poem and that most teachers are unaware of students’ response.” BS Gross. 1984. P 203.

Comment: Do we ever teach students how to respond to a poem? How do their teachers respond to poems? If the teacher tells students what the poem means, the teachers would, of course, not know what students’ responses are. RayS.
