Reading the weekly update from Discovery Education (United Streaming), I noticed that today is Black Poetry Day. Sign into United Streaming and download the video:
Poetry Matters” in Careers in Language Arts — Grades 6–12
check out the pictures of poets:
James Weldon Johnson
Edna St. Vincent Millay
Paul Laurence Dunbar
Then use the classroom activities at Read, Write and Think. http://www.readwritethink.org/CALENDAR/calendar_day.asp?id=310
Celebrating this contribution to the world can be done at any time.
