just browsing, thanks

Some interesting finds from the past couple of days – hope you find something to strike your fancy.Also, watch the sidebar scroll here or follow me on Twitter (@djvorreyer) to read lines from the chapbooks my 7th grade students created this quarter. I will post this week, maybe next week while I’m on vacation, and then continue as long as I have lines to tweet.

Wonderful new poem “Inside the Balloon” at wicked alice by Jessica Ankeny.

A sad but true article on the state of teaching at The Educator’s Room – “The Exhaustion of the American Teacher.”

And, of course, go to Susan Rich’s The Alchemist’s Kitchen to participate in The Big Poetry Giveaway – she has a running sidebar of all the bloggers who are giving away books. Including me!
