As young people gain experience in reading or performing poems out loud, providing feedback can help them learn and grow in confidence and skill. Here’s on example based on the work of Nile Stanley in Creating Readers with Poetry (Maupin House, 2004). You can simply provide feedback using the following list or assess each criterion using the usual scale of excellent, satisfactory, or needs improvement.
The first criterion is:
The reader projects in an audible, but not distorted voice, that can be heard by all.
For more details, get your copy of The Poetry Teacher’s Book of Lists.
And if you already have the book and would like to offer additions, corrections, or other input, please do so in the COMMENTS area. Thanks!
