Hi Member,
“He could feel the house of sleepers around him like loaves on shelves.” Ooh!  Isn’t that just a great sentence? It’s one of my favorites from the talented Anne Carson. In honor of National Poetry Month, we’ve pulled together some videos and resources to help you celebrate (including a link to a great lesson on favorite sentences).
 
As a way to decide which Tch videos to share this week, I searched through all of our videos that focus on poetry and selected a few that are aligned with Common Core. Can’t hurt, right? Then I looked at comments from our members to see what’s resonating within our community.  
 
So, this week, rather than describe the videos to you, I’ll let our members tell you what they think. And, thanks to all of you who made these valuable comments!
