Tadpoles in the Torrens:

Teacher's Edition

This was taken from the ALEA website. I am 1 of 40 writers in this publication. ALEA have full copyright of what has been written below:

Poems are happening all around us – when you’re breezing along on your bike seeing  people, houses, dogs and traffic as they flash by; when there’s a possum on the wall at school and everyone’s gathered around; or when the seagulls rise and fall with each ball bowled at the oval. Tadpoles in the Torrens is alive with people, places and creatures from our everyday lives and from the quirky imaginations of poets.

This Teachers’ Edition of Tadpoles in the Torrens includes 40 exciting vignettes of engaging practice tried and tested by a raft of ALEA members as well as an academic position paper on the place of poetry in contemporary Australian primary school classrooms. Specific references are made to the ACARA Australian Curriculum: English. Teachers will be inspired to gorge on and create for themselves and their children a healthy diet of Australian children’s poetry.
