The Chemistry of Poetry: Transfer Across Disciplines
Contribution to Book
Poetry and Pedagogy Across the Lifespan
Teaching poetry and chemistry together reveals how the humanities and sciences require similar analytical and problem-solving skills. While students typically see poetry as more “subjective” and chemistry as more “objective,” close interdisciplinary reading can help them understand that all forms of inquiry include affective and interpretive, as well as evidence-based, elements.
