"Poetry Speaks Who I Am"
April is National Poetry Month! Middle school students this year have Poetry Speaks: Who I Am, an anthology of poetry chosen for the middle school student to enjoy. This book has contemporary and traditional poetry side by side sharing the struggles and successes that tweens & teens live every day.
This book hasn't been on my school desk long enough for me to read all the way through the powerful pages. Students are checking it out faster than I canrecord. The CD is a great compliment to a book that shares a common voice with the listener and their lives.
This is a book that should be available to all middle school students!
