Go and Catch a Falling Star: A Program to Restore Poetry to Primary School Curricula

To provide poetry dramatizations, and to put teachers and working poets together in curriculum planning teams, so teachers can benefit from the expertise of poets. Planned activities are: 1) to create a half-hour video-tape adaptation of two poetry dramatizations which were originally produced live in three California school districts; 2) to conduct an in-service training program on the teaching of poetry for teachers and administrators in two Berkeley schools; 3) to produce a 10-minute training film on oral and written language development and a written curriculum both of which would accompany the video-taped dramatizations.
