The Teaching Artists of Troupe d’ Jour
equip students and educators with fresh
techniques for understanding poetry,
and enjoying it.
Our strategies bear proven results
in the classroom, on test days,
and for lifelong learning.
We incorporate all learning styles in
every session, engaging each student
for her/his fullest participation.
