teachin' school

definitely beautiful, definitely beautiful…

i absolutely LOVE zen pencils.  a comic artist takes a quote each week (based on reader suggestions) and transforms it into a super cool comic.  i’ve used several of his poems in my world geography classes to get conversations going and flowing.  this week on zen pencils is a poem by taylor mali, a slam poet who used to be a teacher and is still an advocate for teachers and education.

click here for the comic (it’s a large image) – WHAT TEACHERS MAKE comic

here’s the video that shows him reciting the poem live. it’s worth a watch.
