About the Expert Deidre Simpson is the author of two books of poetry. During her teen years, she wrote often and was an avid reader as well. Writing poetry kept her balanced and gave her an excellent outlet for her emotional personality. She later became a member of a creative writers’ group at her high school. When the group decided to publish a magazine, she gladly contributed by writing poems and inviting other students to submit their work. In her senior year, she entered a poetry contest held by a local university and received Honorable Mention for her poem. Receiving two diaries for her 10th birthday is what started her writing career. Fiction novels and studying poetry in her middle school English class helped her hobby grow. Her worst experience was having to memorize a favorite poem by a famous author and recite it on video. She was petrified, but her poetry skills were advancing. One of her best memories is of two local poets that visited her creative writing class. According to her, doing what you truly love is the definition of work. Writing is one of the best ways to say something, even if it is only to the self. As she puts it, “Poetry is like a firecracker. It is small and has one form when unlit, like when the poem is finalized. Then when you share it with someone or a group of people, much like lighting it, it shoots into the sky and becomes a huge, beautiful, untouchable cloud after the rain.” HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.

School: It's frustrating, it's boring, it's embarrassing. But it's also thought provoking, challenging and full of possible friends. And until you turn 18, like it or not, it's just about your whole life. So what's the deal? Chicken Soup for the Soul knows that school is more than classes and tests. It's also a social scene, filled with cliques, clubs and life-changing decisions (or so it seems this week). It's where you meet your best friends…and run into your worst enemies. And it’s an opportunity to figure out what you want to do—whether it's kick a soccer ball, play the trombone or act in a play. Sometimes it's overwhelming and confusing, but don't worry, it's like that for everyone. That's what the stories in this book are all about. They’re from real teens, and they're about the bizarre, embarrassing and sometimes triumphant things that really happened to them. And they’re here to give you some perspective on everything that goes down at your school...and outside of it, too. Put that together with weird facts, cool graphics, fun advice and quizzes designed to help you figure out who you are and what you're up to, and you've got the real deal on school—full of all the laughter, tears and daily drama that life is all about.

Now in its fourth edition, this popular textbook introduces prospective and practicing English teachers to current methods of teaching literature in middle and high school classrooms. This new edition broadens its focus to cover important topics such as critical race theory; perspectives on teaching fiction, nonfiction, and drama; the integration of digital literacy; and teacher research for ongoing learning and professional development. It underscores the value of providing students with a range of different critical approaches and tools for interpreting texts. It also addresses the need to organize literature instruction around topics and issues of interest to today’s adolescents. By using authentic dilemmas and contemporary issues, the authors encourage preservice English teachers and their instructors to raise and explore inquiry-based questions that center on the teaching of a variety of literary texts, both classic and contemporary, traditional and digital. New to the Fourth Edition: Expanded attention to digital tools, multimodal learning, and teaching online New examples of teaching contemporary texts Expanded discussion and illustration of formative assessment Revised response activities for incorporating young adult literature into the literature curriculum Real-world examples of student work to illustrate how students respond to the suggested strategies Extended focus on infusing multicultural and diverse literature in the classroom Each chapter is organized around specific questions that preservice teachers consistently raise as they prepare to become English language arts teachers. The authors model critical inquiry throughout the text by offering authentic case narratives that raise important considerations of both theory and practice. A companion website, a favorite of English education instructors,, provides resources and enrichment activities, inviting teachers to consider important issues in the context of their current or future classrooms.

The ultimate writing guide from the editor of Ink Knows No Borders: Poems of the Immigrant and Refugee Experience My Shouting, Shattered Whispering Voice offers ways to express rage, frustration, joy, and sorrow, and to substitute apathy with creativity, usurp fear with daring, counteract anxiety with the joy of writing one word down and then another to express vital, but previously unarticulated, thoughts. Most importantly, here you can discover the value of your own voice and come to believe that what you have to say matters. Especially at this time, when many of us are a tumult of emotions and have time on our hands, picking up pen and paper or getting yourself to a black document might be the best part of your day! By chronicling what you’re experiencing—the thoughts and feelings—you can calm fear and make art out of what’s troubling. But don’t stop there! Find beauty in the silence and celebrate having time to reflect. Written in short, easy-to-digest chapters, My Shouting, Shattered, Whispering Voice includes prompts and inspiration, writing suggestions and instruction, brief interviews with some current popular poets such as Kim Addonizio, Safia Elhillo, and others, and poem excerpts scattered throughout the book.

Shaking Off the Dark

Poetry in Spanish, English and Spanglish. Latino/a Studies. First published in 1984 by Arte Publico, "Shaking off the Dark" has become one of the classics of Chicano literature. This new, corrected edition features poems not included in the first edition, as well as introduction and bibliography. These poems are thoughtful, angry, perceptive, and address such topics as art, time, love, oppression, history, and language itself. "Distraught, /mad-eyed from told formulas/bound to rule my easy ways, /I look, I see, /but fail once more to know." In this "failure" to know, however, Villanueva provides us a gorgeous window onto the worlds he sees so sharply. "So arise, Chicano, " he extorts, "arise from the shadow of Nothingness; /arise from that neverending Nada of servitude./The problem is we live by other people's words" (from "Speak Up, Chicano, Speak Up"). Villanueva does speak up, creating poems to counter "other people's words." A recipient of the American Book Award, Villanueva lives in Boston and teaches at Boston University.
