No Voice Too Small book page

Educational Resources: Activity Guide, Lessons, On-Demand Distance Learning Resources

To meet the needs of teachers in this constantly changing school landscape, Jeanette Bradley, Lindsay H. Metcalf and I have created a flexible school author visit package for NO VOICE TOO SMALL. We have built both on-demand (asynchronous) and live (synchronous) options, suitable for classroom or at-home use.  

Many of the poets who contributed to NO VOICE TOO SMALL have created mini writing workshop videos. Some have also recorded themselves reading their poems. There’s much to learn from watching these master craftspeople talk about their creative process!

Flip Book Club

Check out the NO VOICE TOO SMALL Book Club on Flip, where readers can watch and respond to poetry readings and writing workshop videos with their own recordings and writings! For privacy, teachers can copy this collection of topics into their private classroom Flipgrid sites. The book’s editors discuss details in the webinar linked at right.

Learn more in another Flipgrid webinar, “Race, Equity, and Justice: Empowering your students to be voices of change.
