Join us for Blackout Poetry Week
Use #blackoutpoets on Twitter and Instagram
Fellow teacher and poetry enthusiast Jason Stephenson and I would like to once again invite all educators, students and authors to help celebrate poetry in the classroom by participating in a worldwide Blackout Poetry Event on Twitter and Instagram. You can find more information about how cool Blackout Poetry is by going here, here and here.
Here are some examples of Blackout Poetry. Stock up on markers and get creative!
We’d love to see you do a blackout poem of a page from your favorite novel, a newspaper article or something lying around your home. Students from all over the world will be participating and sharing their love of words.
Please contact @blackoutpoets, @lesleymosher and @teacherman82 for more information.
