naomi-shihab-nyeI’m becoming an enthusiastic fan of Naomi Shihab Nye. Not just of her wonderful poetry, but of her as a teacher and as someone who really inspires me to continue my love affair with poetry.

I was excited to run across these two videos this morning. I love the way she talks about making poems your own. The first is about how to TEACH poetry, the second about WRITING DOWN YOUR OWN THOUGHTS. I thought I’d post them in case any of you were further interested in what Ms. Nye had to say. I hope you’ll identify with and learn from them. Enjoy!
