@S. Elizabeth This is my dream life.
I need your thoughts on poetry! Specifically, poetry that appeals to 9th graders in an inner city school (My life is Dangerous Minds).
After reading about the William Carlos Williams poem that is enjoying another resurgence, I thought what better way to get ideas for my poetry unit than to reach out to the smart ladies and dudes of the 'Pin.
Poems, poets, books, blogs, something scribbled on the side of a bus, it's all welcome! Thanks! :-)
@frigwiggin Your dinner related tweets always make me...wistful? jealous? and then the microwave dings on my pizza.
@parallel-lines Thanks for this. As a new teacher it can be difficult to navigate what's "fun" and "interesting" and what is just plain good hard work and then creating an engaging mix of the two. Until the one-to-one teaching robots come to replace me, I'll have to keep shooting for the middle, and unfortunately, that's going to exclude some of those outlier kids.

First Jane, now this. It's like everyone is leaving the party just when I showed up. (to be fair, I mostly sit in the corner and lurk)
@frigwiggin I enjoy your comments here, and will start enjoying them in my twitter stream!
