Hey all Logic here.

for those that don't know, I'm currently working on my Ph.D in Education, one of my areas of study is a comprehensive look at ways and strategies to meld poetry and K-12 education. As a matter of fact this semester I am teaching a class to pre-service teachers called Reading Writing & Teaching Poetry. THe class is designed to give the next generation of teachers better ammunition to teach poetry to the millennials.

That being said, I know a lot of us are teaching various poetry classes to various constituencies. Some are MFA's teaching grads students, some are teaching undergrads, some are teaching K-12. I thought it may be a good idea to have a space here, where we discuss the different texts we a re using, the different methods we are using, and the different assignments, lesson plans, syllabi, or anything else that we can do as a community to help each other out.

Just talking to different poets on facebook and at WOW I realize there are quite a few of us out there, and I think it could be helpful to us and to our students to share some info. I think it may also be interesting to see how we can collectively push the conversation.

Anyone interested in sharing ... let me know....

Thanks, Buddy.  This EC is an excellent crew.  Thank a slammaster who votes in the spring elections.

I think the EC has always worked toward being a very professional body for PSi.  This EC is certainly one of the tops in terms of their professional approach toward getting the work done.

I just looked at the crew behind PSI Executive Council for the first time in years, so I know I'm entirely late to the party, but Eff Yes! Stoked to see this team of folks running things.
Have a blast at NPS,

Simone,

I've got him already, no worries, and his submission. 

I didn't bother to post questions about any of the years / names I already have.

I don't see 2009 or 2010 in your list above. Wasn't Patrick S. the winner or runner-up one of those years?
