Here's another example from my adult students sharing poetry with young people in my "learning from my students' students" series.
We're looking at how they interacted with You Just Wait: A Poetry Friday Power Book using each PowerPack to see how young writers responded.

Finally, Lauren also recommended another book of concrete poetry that students might enjoy in her resources slide:
