What Teachers Make

Taylor Mali, author of "What Teachers Make"

I’ve seen versions of this floating around the web from time to time, but KB Connected just posted one that I hadn’t seen yet.  It’s a very powerful poem by Taylor Mali, and the video incorporates text and photos in a way that really “packs a punch”, so to speak.  It will inspire and motivate you if you are a teacher.  I can also see certain contexts in which it would be valuable to show to students.  Be aware that there is a word that, though changed in the text, can still be easily inferred from the audio, so this would not be a video to show young children.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
