Poem Detectives is a series for students who know the poem basics and are looking for creative extension. Supported by the range of activities and information this series offers, they can create and edit well-grounded, original work. The warm-up activities frame the creative word play that sparks great ideas, while longer activities prompt the students to dive deeper into poem analysis. Fun ideas for refining poems are included in a practical section on editing your own work. As well as opening the way for down-to-earth and high-interest topics, it offers guidance on taking part in poem slams and written competitions.
