This is a nice safe product for junior high kids!
It is a collection of poets reciting their original poems and some published poems such as: Victor Herendez Cruz "Problems with Hurricanes,"Death be Not Proud" by John Donne, "The Tuft of flowers" by Robert Frost, "When I have Fears that I may Cease to Be" by John Keats.
The original poems appeal to middle school kids. Some of the original themes are: video games, school lunches,dreams/goals, A.D.D.,fireworks,and quite a few Haikus. It is about 55 mins long.If nothing else, it would be a safe DVD for a "sub" day.
