For my Computers in Education class I have an assignment in which I am to do create an imovie relating to a state of Indiana educational standard, then assign my students to do a scavenger hunt on the web to various sights. Well, I chose spoken/perfomed poetry and came across this wonderful thing, My Favorite Poem Project. Perhaps some of you have heard of it and seen it already. I have been watching these movies all afternoon, and trying to decide which one to use for the assignment. I really like the "We Real Cool" poem and the way the Boston student reads it.
What do you all think? Which one do you like best?

Talia, we've discussed the favorite poem project before on e-mule: [www.emule.com] />
I didn't really care for most of the readings. The one you've selected is as good as any. I did enjoy Stanley Kunitz talking about Hopkins, though I don't think his reading does that poem justice.
It continues to be my favorite anthology.
