Dr Kay Fuller recently attended the ESRC funded Poetry Matters seminar at the University of Leicester. Academics interested in teaching poetry across the country and internationally have been working together on a series of seminars across a 12 month period at the Universities of Exeter, Greenwich and Leicester. Kay was invited as someone who is specifically promoting the teaching of poetry on a PGDipEd course and in schools generally. She was delighted that there were findings that she has already incorporated into her teaching session about teaching reading!
