Erin Wibbens, Ph.D.
Associate Clinical Professor., University of Notre Dame
          The Poetic Classroom

Teachers will have the opportunity to consider the poetic genre as a tool for both comprehending and unpacking content and themes within the content areas. Teachers will also experience several pedagogical strategies and activities, participate in shared poetry writing, and be exposed to poems and poets that encourage synthesis and inference making.

Dr. Wibbens brings expertise and experience from her areas of interest and research in multiple classrooms with teachers, teacher candidates and their students to further literacy equity and instruction. She is a fellow in the Alliance for Catholic Education and Institute for Educational Initiatives at Notre Dame. She has many experiences to draw on as she supports teachers and teacher candidates in her work as an associate clinical professor. How fortunate we are to welcome Dr. Wibbens to the Mid-Hudson Reading Council to share her knowledge with us.

 New York State Teaching Standards will be addressed during this presentation.  Standard I: “Knowledge of Students and Student Learning.” Element I.3 “Teachers demonstrate knowledge of and are responsive to diverse learning needs, strengths, interests, and experiences of all students.” Standard II: “Teachers know the content they are responsible for teaching and plan instruction that ensures growth and achievement for all students.” Element II.3 “Teachers use a broad range of instructional strategies to make subject matter accessible.” Element II.4 “Teachers establish goals and expectations for all students that are aligned with learning standards and allow for multiple pathways to achievement.”
