To meet the needs of teachers and students in 2020's constantly-changing school landscape, Lindsay H. Metcalf, Keila V. Dawson and I have created a flexible school author visit package for NO VOICE TOO SMALL. We have built this on-demand (asynchronous) library of videos, suitable for classroom or at-home use.
Many of the poets who contributed to NO VOICE TOO SMALL have created mini writing workshop videos, some have also recorded themselves reading their poem. I have learned so much from watching these master craftspeople talk about their creative process, and I hope you and your students will as well.
Because schools and families are in unique situations in 2020, we have developed multiple ways for you to access and use these free, on-demand materials in your classroom, for distance learning, or homeschool classrooms at home.
