Academic Paper


Title: Meaningful literacy: Writing poetry in the language classroom
Author: David Ian Hanauer
Institution: Indiana University of Pennsylvania
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: This paper develops the concept of meaningful literacy and offers a classroom methodology – poetry writing – that manifests this approach to ESL/EFL literacy instruction. The paper is divided into three sections. The first deals with the concept of meaningful literacy learning in second and foreign language pedagogy; the second summarizes empirical evidence that characterizes second language (L2) poetry writing; and the third describes the practical aspects of teaching poetry writing. This approach is presented as a way of humanizing the second and foreign language classroom by refocusing on the individual language learner as the center of the learning process.
