I love reading poetry to my students, and they love to listen. But when they read poetry, many of them read without phrasing, intonation, expression, and fluency. So I have created a VoiceThread for students to evaluate how I read a poem, Our Teacher Likes Minecraft, by Kenn Nesbitt, in the hopes that they will think more critically about how poems should sound. I chose this particular piece because I have many Minecraft aficionados in my classroom this year.
