As the 19-20 school year begins for many of us, I wanted to again share the poetry resources that have been curated on the National Poetry Month Wakelet (which is for all year long). This is the link to the home page bit.ly/2pVwK19. #TeachLivingPoets
This is the link to the collection of poems that poets teach (and I may need to update it) bit.ly/poemspoetsteach #TeachLivingPoets
This is the direct link to the Wakelet collection of resources that are also hyperlinked in my review of Eve Ewing's 1919 on the #TeachLivingPoets website bit.ly/eveewing1919

Planning an upcoming unit with #1984 as a core text. Join me, #DisruptTexts friends, as I try to figure this unit out... (this will be my ongoing thread as I pull together ideas over the next few weeks).

Suggestions more than welcome... #aplitchat #aplangchat #engchat
So Ss will be moving from a unity of study in Storytelling, and next we’ll move to a unit of study on Truth, with 1984 as a core text.

Day 1 of summer school down. We’re reading Wilson’s FENCES. Our first paired text was Morrison's “Recitatif.” Tomorrow, it’s the “Bona and Paul” Excerpt from Jean Toomer’s CANE. #pairedtexts #engchat #litchat
Day 2 included a close reading of “Bona and Paul,” followed by theme statements for the story, and a gender-flipped reading of Act One Scene One of FENCES. Two girls read the parts of Troy and Bono and there was much engagement and laughter.
Preliminary Notes from Day 3:

Student to me: Did you pick FENCES or did they tell you to teach it?
Me: No, I picked it. I love teaching it.
Him: You picked a good one.
