The Tax Man Cometh today… so I decided to do a free webinar providing some tool and insights on using Poetry in the classroom.
My theme: Is Poetry Dead?
My answer: Heck no!
In case you haven’t been paying attention, the past few years have seen an absolutely amazing renaissance in poetry… particularly when it come to teens and their interest in reading, writing and performing (via spoken word) poetry.
Truly, it energizes a classroom in such an electric manner that to try and even describe it is simply not possible. You just gotta live it to see it.
And the truth is, it’s SO EASY to replicate in your own classroom.
Later today, I am going to talk about this, provide some free tools and teaching tips and thoughts on how to tackle the teaching of poetry and so on because hey, Uncle Sam might be reaching into your pocket today but since it’s National Poetry Month I figured why not try to put something of solid value — and of no cost — in your teacher’s bag as well.
To check it out, simply go here.
In closing today, I’ll end with a little poetry about taxes… as authored by The Beatles.
If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat,
If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.
