    It wasn’t—think the focus was more on him as a performance poet. Could be an engaging way for kids to turn their own poetry into engaging performances. I loved it too.

  3. Angela, good thing he interpreted the story. 🙂 I think I am a good texter until I meet or see someone who does THAT! 🙂 My 2o-year-old cousin blows me away with her speed and her shortcuts. AND they work for me. I get what she is saying. I wonder what that means…that I get it.

  4. I agree! I admit that I am not a great texter, and I’m kind of afraid to become one. I hardly need one more addiction (my husband will confirm this). As far as the piece above is concerned, I think it’s incredibly relevant, and I’m wondering if some teacher somewhere is already doing this sort of work with kids. Very engaging. My 11 year old was intrigued.
