Favorite Poem Project

Posted on Wednesday, October 08, 2008

Founded by Robert Pinsky, the 39th Poet Laureate of the United States, the Favorite Poem Project aims to promote the role of poetry in the lives of Americans. The official website of the project offers a collection of video documentaries about poetry that will not only satisfy poetry lovers but are also useful to students and teachers of literature, American studies, English as a second language, and other subjects.

Features:

  • 50 video documentaries featuring individual Americans reading and speaking about their favorite poems
  • Transcripts of poems for viewers to read along as they watch the videos
  • Lesson plans and teaching ideas for teachers who wish to incorporate poetry into their lessons
