    1. Nancie Atwell has this uncanny ability to make people want to get up in front of middle school students and teach. Her books and writings are so inspirational because they empower the teacher and the student. I certainly didn't love every poem she included in this collection, but what I DO love is the way she approaches poetry with her students and how she has managed to make it so accessible. If I had known how accessible poetry really was before this, I would've done more with it in my own cla [...]

    2. I really love the idea of reading and discussing poetry to teach reading concepts. It's a quick way to reinforce many different standards and gives kids extra practice in figuring out the author's message, which is practice very much needed. This book has plenty of poems to choose from and has lesson starters ready to go. Not all of the poems are works that I would feel comfortable to give to kids, but there are enough available that skipping a few won't matter.

    3. Excellent collection of poems to share with middle-school students. This book will be the basis for my poetry exploration next year; it is the most comprehensive and well-rounded collection for teachers to share with their students that I've encountered. I appreciate the inclusion of many, many student-authored poems.

    4. I read this book my first year of teaching. It was invigorating to watch Atwell teach on the DVD, and her lessons inspired me and showed me the way to better teaching. I like most of the poems in this collection.

    5. I started putting post-its on the pages of poems I wanted to try with my students and when I finished, I laughed. Nearly every page. I love how she includes student responses to her lessons, and how she emphasizes the experience of a poem and not the intellectualizing of it (at least not at first). I started using this approach and immediately I was having more fun. I am envious that she has a class that meets daily.I found myself a little restless with her beginning-days poems, the ones when sh [...]

    6. Abandoned, but I will return to it as this is a great model for my classes and chocked full of good poems.

    7. To be honest, I had a pretty lukewarm relationship with poetry until I got my head around Attwell's teaching methods. Poems are the very best way to teach very tricky concepts in literature. I teach grades 4-6 at my school, and we start the class with one of her selected poems. I can honestly say that every kid in my class knows what a metaphor, simile, assonance, alliteration and refrain is, among many others. I was intimidated by such terms myself well into adulthood, only to find that exposur [...]

    8. Mostly professional poets' work, but some of Nancie's students' works as well. Each poem comes with a brief introduction, list of what's notable about the poem, and "benediction," or way to wrap it up and encourage your young poets to go out and write something along the same vein. Should be in every English teacher's arsenal. Great for middle as well as high school.
