One incredible thing about teaching is the ability to share.
In my classroom we have discussed personal narrative for the last 7 weeks. My students experimented with sensory writing, identity poems, and courageously spoke their legacies.
Today we combine all of these topics and themes… And in the midst of testing and state exams my classes will explore one of my favorite films of all time, Beasts Of The Southern Wild.
Everything about this movie is poetry. Visually, it brings me to tears. The language gives me goosebumps.
