How I Use It
I use this site to have students find accessible, student friendly poetry. It's a good site for a quick list of poems that can be used by all levels of learners. It's useful for introductory poetry work, however it does not have in depth information on the poets, any analysis of the poetry, or any other depth.
My Take
The site is useful to find poems to start a poetry unit and/or lesson. I'd like to see it add more features, such as biographical information on the poets or a community forum for people to share their thoughts on the poems. The site could also be improved by having an audio version of the poems. It's a useful site but limited in its scope.
