"My Favorite Poems to Teach", a course for high school English teachers only, will take place on voicethread.com. Your instructor will present their favorite eight poems to teach, including "Jersey Rain" by Robert Pinsky, "Constantly Risking Absurdity" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and "Twilight Train" by Eileen Myles. The instructor will read the poem off the slide and offer both interpretation and options for classroom activities. Some poems will contain marginal notes from students. You'll get the chance to read and talk about your favorite poems to teach, and then watch three other presentations. That's a lot of poetry! You have one month to complete this course. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion with the equivalent of 7 professional development hours.
