Anne McCrady – Close, Closer, Closest: The Art of Reading Poetry

Anne McCrady guides teachers in how to explore and then present poems as skilled and artful, multi-layered explorations of the human condition.  Anne will explain the art and practice of writing poetry, explore poetic topics that are obstacles to teachers, model close reading techniques, offer insights on poets’ intentions and lead teachers through close reading of a wide range of poems.  Participants will know how to enjoy, document and present a close reading as an appreciation of a poem.
