How I Use It
This site can be used in any classroom that wants to incorporate poetry into their classroom. This site would be very helpful for teachers looking for poems based on mood, subject, and poet. In addition they offer audio versions. This is good because students get sick of hearing their teachers and by using the audio version they are hearing a different voice. Teachers looking to create a unit on poetry or poets would be wise to use this site.
My Take
This is a great site to use in the classroom. It not only offers students the chance to explore poetry but offers the audio for students who struggle with reading. I like how you can search for poetry by mood, subject and poet. Teachers won't need to spend hours searching for a poem on dogs when they use this app. As teachers we are always running out of time and by using this app teachers can cut down on the amount of time they spend looking for material
