Remarks:   
Background The workshops aim to promote the awareness of school teachers of the needs and approaches to catering for the linguistically gifted students. Various poetic structures, the use of rhyme patterns and poetic devices will be discussed. Participants will be encouraged to develop strategies of guiding students to express creative ideas and construct poems by using poetic devices precisely. Participants will be involved in using models and templates to develop student friendly strategies for writing poems and assisting entrants in the Budding Poets Award. 
Objective(s) After the workshop, the participants should be able to: a) include poetry in the language curriculum and/or programmes with strategic highlights of 3P's, 3R's and OPS; b) revisit and explore the techniques to guide more able English language learners to write and improve works according to ability.
