Discussion Questions for #engchat
Tomorrow evening (Monday, March 17) Lesley Mosher and I will be co-hosting the Twitter #engchat on how to incorporate poetry into the English classroom. The chat is from 7-8 EST, and I hope you’ll join us. We’ve made a tentative outline for our discussion. We probably won’t follow it to a tee, but this gives you a general idea of where we’re headed. We’ve been plotting and planning for a while now, and we’re so grateful to Meeno Rami, the founder of #engchat, for this opportunity.
