When I feel like channeling my inner angsty teen or when I feel the need to yell absurdly loud, I listen to music from those who feel the same. Weirdly enough, instead of fueling my frustrations, listening to angry music actually is a way to let off steam and channel feelings in a positive way.
I like this poem because it shows the idea of using different mediums to teach content. It reminds me on the current even raps that we listened to in class. Because of the rhyme scheme, and the fun nature of this tool, that content that the poem demonstrates is likely to be internalized by the students. It can also be added to my repertoire of transitional songs that create learning opportunities even in the down time.
The mountains are my bones, the rivers my veins, the forests are my thoughts and the stars are my dreams. The ocean is my heart its pounding is my pulse. The songs of the earth write the music of my soul.
