This article offers some ideas on how to introduce poetry to ELLs and integrate it with reading instruction, as well as some ideas for reading poetry aloud in a way that will encourage oral language development. Poetry All-Year Round Even though poetry gets a lot of attention during Poetry Month in April as it shouldit is fun to teach any time of year! I must admit that I am drawn to fiction, and teaching poetry seemed daunting at first; but I have discovered the joy of poetry while exploring it with my English language learners, and my students have been very enthusiastic about our poetry units. Versatility Poetry is so versatile, which makes it a great form to use in the ELL classroom.
Happy 84th Birthday to Gulzar: His towering contributions as a poet, short-story writer, filmmaker, scriptwriter, lyricist and a story-writer for children are well-known.
What is less well-known is the fact that he was born in the city of Dina, near Jhelum in Punjab, 13 years before the Partition. The first two poems are gentle reminders by Gulzar to Iqbal and Faiz about the new circumstances and the ground realities, despite what the revolutionary slogans depicted.
In the third poem, Gulzar has given a knowledgeable hint about revolution. Despite his modern tone and style, there is a tiny revolutionary too present somewhere within Gulzar.
This revolutionary wants to speak somewhat in the manner of progressives like Iqbal elsewhere, but perhaps is not brave enough. This is why he is limited in expressing his anger, but such an expression of rage too has its own importance.
The last two poems indicate my point. Someone just give Allama the news, That the fields from where the peasant could not obtain bread, No one even burnt the ears of wheat in the fields, No one rose in revolt anywhere, neither a revolution came. Funerals rise from village after village, All of them are the funerals of peasants, Who committed suicide by nibbling the earth of debt.
Someone just give Allama the news The cage is sad friends! A piece of green chilli lies there, The bowl of water is empty, it had overturned. The bird has long departed, the cage has nothing!
The cage is sad, friends Ash too is beginning to descend into the eyes, Of the revolutionary kept behind bars! At least we feel that we are alive, We have an existence!Within numerous poems written by Pablo Neruda, an abundance of figurative language and literary devices can be found.
The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and we provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue. Poems can be used to introduce or practice new vocabulary, language structures, and rhyming devices, and shorter poems often give ELLs a chance to explore an idea while working with a more manageable amount of text than a short story or essay.
