The study of American and English poetry related to Cooperative teaching ideas and teaching methodology in a EFL classroom is important at schools in which poetry is rarely studied. The study of poetry vinculated to English teaching methodology might help teachers interested in working with poetry in their classes. This research will focus on a selection of poems to which some principles of English teaching methodology applied to the classroom will be used. Then we will relate them to ideas of Cooperative teaching and learning. The type of methodology chosen here to explore the theme will be bibliographical research and its application to a classroom in which we will attempt at interacting poetry to cooperative teaching as well as suggestions for EFL classes.
