An Opportunity for Teachers    :)

Dear Subscribers,

I'm writing to announce a special opportunity for K-12 teachers from the Favorite Poem Project. If you're not a teacher, but would like to help us spread the word, please forward this email to an educator you know.

Former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, in cooperation with the Boston University School of Education, is accepting applications from teachers and teacher/administrator teams across grade level for a remarkable week of poetry in Boston, July 13-17. Participants will read and discuss poems with renowned practitioners of the art, five award-winning American poets. Past faculty include Frank Bidart, Mark Doty, Louise Gluck and Heather McHugh. Teachers will work in groups to develop lesson plans to share with each other and bring back to their classrooms.

Visit the Favorite Poem Project website (link below) to learn more, or to download an application.

Best wishes,

Maggie Dietz
Director, Favorite Poem Project
