News at Eleven: Inspired by the reading, I added

an independent project component, the Ancestor Poetry Anthology, to my class, which allows students to explore their own ancestor poets. These poets may share students' communities, identities, and languages, reflecting their small and larger concerns with identity, love, loss, nationhood and belonging.

My students are currently researching poets from Southern California--an expansive and hugely diverse region.
