FYI: The Poetry Out Loud program @ high schools


For those who are teachers, know teachers — or as one brother once asked me “What can I do to help the children I mentor/teach?” — this appears to be an excellent program, and you might want to check it out.

An excerpt from the website:

The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation have partnered with State Arts Agencies of the United States to support the expansion of Poetry Out Loud, which encourages the nation’s youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and performance. This exciting program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage.
