AOS Welcomes Poet Naomi Shihab Nye
Jeri Lodato

Naomi Shihab Nye, the Poetry Foundation’s Young People's Poet Laureate 2019-2021, recently visited virtually with 4th-6th-grade students. Naomi discussed her recent book Cast Away: Poems for Our Time. Through her poetry, Naomi reflects on how we cast away objects without much consideration, and also how we sometimes treat people as things that can be discarded. This book has strong connections to both environmental and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) themes. Our students have been exploring these themes in their own "found object" poetry and in discussions about the environment.
