Poetry Read-a-thon 2006

From the Academy of American Poets & The National Council of Teachers of English:

In April 2006, the Academy of American Poets will launch the first-ever Poetry Read-a-Thon. Geared for middle school students (grades 5-8), the Read-a-Thon’s goals are to celebrate the reading of poems and writing about poems. In addition to emphasizing the pleasure and fun of reading poetry, the Read-a-Thon will facilitate the students’ development of writing and comprehension skills.
The Academy of American Poets is partnering with the American Poetry & Literacy Project (APLP) to edit and produce a special anthology of poems appropriate for ages 10-The Academy and APLP will distribute approximately 30,000 copies of this free anthology to participating classrooms and community partners.
