Instructive thoughts



Some months ago I watched a student I was mentoring use the first verse of this poem with a class at school to build up a writing project they were working on.  I was inspired by his original approach to a tired old subject, he injected a wonder into instructions.  Tomorrow I am going to try it out on my class and see if they are up to the challenge.

In the meantime, enjoy a lovely film accompaniment to a superb poem read by the author.
