Moving Poetry and Curriculum Development Institute (CDI)
- The University of Hong Kong and Curriculum Development Institute (CDI)
of the Education and Manpower Bureau collaboratively sponsored two weekends
of workshops in February 2003. Teachers and students and poets came
together to learn more about the art and skills of writing poems, and
the study of clear and accurate self-expression.
- New curriculum materials, including exercises and activities, are
currently being developed to expand upon these widening circles. Activities
in Moving Poetry are designed and refined to help late primary and early
secondary students become effective readers and creative thinkers by
giving them practice in the structure and features of poetic form, practice
in seeing accurately, thinking closely, and organizing their observations.
