The Scottish Poetry Library and the Scottish Parliament are delighted to be working in partnership through our series of Parliament & Poetry schools’ workshops, and in the form of this resource.
There are four different lesson plans for using the Scottish Parliament as inspiration for writing poetry.

The Scottish Poetry Library believes that poetry is a vital element in the life of the imagination, and central to the development of language and self-expression.
We aim to inspire and encourage children of all ages, and their teachers, to discover and rediscover the pleasures of reading and writing poetry.
Our children’s collection and poetry teaching resources, together with the developing Curriculum for Excellence, underpin an exciting and varied year-round programme of poetry workshops for all ages and stages, led by professional Scottish poets.
And our Continuing Professional Development workshops offer support and enable teachers to approach poetry writing in class with greater confidence, creativity and enjoyment.
