Day 19 of the March SOLSC! #SOL15

Write, Share, Give
Write, Share, Give



Kimber Strassberger, from i-here-now, wrote a piece this month about what she is and what she is not. In poem form, she wrote This is Me and inspired me to write my own poem with the same similar structure. Try out this form and tell what you are and what you are not.



“If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

…But soon or later the person who wins

Is the person who thinks they can.”

    1. This post is extraordinarily written with its reference to the play, the song, the attention to detail, its persuasiveness…I could go on and on. I think it’s so good and so clear that I would love to see you try to publish this! It makes one of the best cases I’ve read so far for moving away from the Common Core and the toxic effect it is having on educators and children. Bravo!
