Poetry in the Intermediate EFL Classroom


Carsten Albers

Abstract The following article aims at reconsidering learning objectives for students when studying poetry in the intermediate EFL classroom and at presenting ways for dealing with poems in a fashion that combines cognitive approaches with creative, individualized, and production-oriented tasks. Some desirable teaching aims and learning objectives will be mentioned and exemplified using a different text for each of three different stages of intermediate EFL learning. Some tasks and results from actual classroom work will be used to explore the possibilities and limitations of the methods and approaches in question.
