he Grammar of Poetry follows Poetry Primer, building on and expanding
the concepts introduced there. The course is designed for students grade
5 or above, though if you're going to implement this text before grade 7
we strongly advise your students complete Poetry Primer first; otherwise
they can start with this one. Also, don't let this be the end of poetry
education—the information is fairly advanced, but still leaves plenty of
uncovered material for high school.
Students who finished Poetry Primer will recognize some lessons. There
are also several entirely new concepts and chapters (30 in all).
Exercises are longer and more involved in the Grammar than they are in
the Primer, and the examples come from more advanced poetry. A good-
sized anthology of poems referred to in the text is included in the back
of the book.

Author Matt Whitling assumes a love of poetry will yield its study
better results than a reluctance to study it. He encourages students to
not be predisposed against poetry. The poems selected were done so with
this in mind, hoping to attract rather than bore potential readers.

The teacher's guide is highly recommended as it includes answers to all
objective exercise questions including technical ones (line scansion,
etc.). Students should be able to read and complete lessons themselves—
there are no lesson plans per se—though any support you can offer is
good. The text is self-contained, however, so if you don't know a lot
about poetry yourself you don't have much to worry about.

This can be either a follow-up to Poetry Primer or an introduction by
itself for somewhat older students. It should in either case lead to
more thorough study in high school. If your kids are younger and really
love poetry you could skip the Primer in favor of this one. A good
humanities education is woefully incomplete without a study of poetry,
and whenever you decide to start this is a good choice. (Exodus books)
