Poem Podcasts

While reading Miguel Guhlin’s blog (which is apparently blocked today), I came across a great idea to have students share their original poems as podcasts. Students routinely write poems for their English classes (and sometimes for themselves), but students rarely publish the poems or even read them and share them with others. Publishing them as podcast would allow them to do both while affording the reader/listener the opportunity to hear the poem read by the author.

Random House is doing something similar by publishing a poem a week as a podcast. The website is a great resource for students/teachers studying poetry.
