Order your #TeachLivingPoets book from NCTE


Teach Living Poets opens up the flourishing world of contemporary poetry to secondary teachers, giving advice on discovering new poets and reading contemporary poetry, as well as sharing sample lessons, writing prompts, and ways to become an engaged member of a professional learning community.

This approach offers rich opportunities for students to improve critical reading and writing, opportunities for self-expression and social-emotional learning, and perhaps the most desirable outcome, the opportunity to fall in love with language and discover (or renew) their love of reading. The many poems included in Teach Living Poets are representative of the diverse poets writing today.

200 pp. 2020. Grades 7–12. Published by NCTE.


These students were in my favorite class last year and they remind me of why I became a teacher. Grateful to know them and I truly believe that they and their peers are going to change the world.
