This year's featured poet is William Carlos Williams - why not bring his work into your classes? The Poetry Foundation site has some great resources for exploring his life and work: a bio and some collected poems, annotated poems with learning guides, discussions of his work, and much more. If you are teaching an advanced class, look into the parodies of his poems. This Is Just To Say That I Am Tired Of Sharing An Apartment With William Carlos Williams is an amusing take on one of his best-loved poems.
The translation event will be held on Wednesday, November 2, from 2:15-4:30. If you or your students want to participate, please RSVP to Prof. Chris Alexander at email@example.com. List the languages you speak for planning purposes.
