*The Impotence of Proofreading, Taylor Mali
I’d just like to share something that brightened my day this morning (other than the sun.) Taylor Mali is a slam poet whom I admire for his ideas on the importance of teaching and of forming good teachers, and I sometimes turn to his work when I need a little extra motivation to step into the classroom. The first of the following poems explores the nobility of teaching..yada yada..and the second looks at eloquence and well-meaning. Some of my other Mali favorites include Reading Allowed and The Impotence of Proofreading (yes, impotence.) I really have nothing else to say other than … he’s probably a really engaging teacher.
