Sixth grade students at H.C. Crittenden Middle School recently enjoyed the first of four visits from poet-in-residence Susan Hoover during which they examined some essential concepts of poetry.
She talked about different poetry styles and devices before setting the students up to create lunes - three-line, 11-word poems. But what the poet really wanted the students to do was enjoy their creativity. "Have fun doing these," she said. When discussing syntax (order of words), Ms. Hoover encouraged the students to "fiddle around with the words. Don't always put the subject first, see what happens." Ms. Hoover is an annual visitor to Crittenden, where her passion has encouraged 18 years of sixth graders to find and strengthen their creative voices. Aside from working in schools, Ms. Hoover has served as a poet-in-residence for Poets in Public Service, Teachers & Writers Collaborative, DIA Foundation, and the Guggenheim Museum. "I love working with this age group; they are at a pivotal point in their journey of discovery," she says. Ms. Hoover also had great things to say about Crittenden. "I can't say enough good things about this school. The teachers and students are amazing," she said. She will return to the sixth grade classes throughout the year to examine various poetry styles.

Susan HooverTeachers & Writers OnLine - Susan HooverSusan HooverSusan HooverPublicationsSusan Hoover was born in Montreal, but grew up and attended schools in Williamstown, Massachusetts.She received an A.A. degree from Colby Sawyer College and a B.A. from the University of Colorado.Before moving to New York, she lived in Boulder and Cambridge, where she was an editor for the literary magazine, Insight.Susan is also a performing musician as well as a guitar teacher with an extensive private practice.She has been on the teaching staff of several New York City music schools, and is currently on the faculty at Mannes College of Music.Over the last 15 years, Susan has worked as a poet-in-residence in more than fifty schools in the greater New York metropolitan area, for Poets in Public Service, Teacher & Writers Collaborative, DIA Foundation, and the Guggenheim Museum. "Teaching for me," Susan says, "is a complex of motivations.Students have a choice as to where they can direct their energies, and if students opt for creative direction, it's almost guaranteed that their lives will be enriched, purposeful, constructive, and a source of pride.There are techniques specific to poetry to be learned in order to find one's voice and make that voice stronger.Seeing students opening up to their own creativity via the written word, and the results which ensue, both on a literary and personal level, is what keeps me engaged, enthusiastic, and excited about teaching." Susan has given many reading in and around the New York City area and New England, including being a featured reader at the first Woodstock Poetry Festival in August 2001.She was a founding member of The All Right!
