Open Access Graduate Research Paper
It was the purpose of this research project to explore the significance of poetry and photography in the classroom. The research included locating and reviewing studies of poetry for children and the use of photography for illustration. It also included reading and analyzing poetry written for and by children, especially those using photography. Journal articles were reviewed for the many ways teachers can use poetry and photography across the curriculum. Students in grades 4, 5, and 6 were interviewed for their feelings and knowledge of poetry, and for their visions of Iowa. A book was produced containing poems and photographs depicting written and visual imagery to create a sensory experience and to enhance visions or memories of Iowa.
