> The Things You Can Read: Emily Dickinson's "I'm Nobody" set to Song

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Emily Dickinson's "I'm Nobody" set to Song

Every school year one nine weeks is devoted to poetry.  Therefore we, here at The Things You Can Read, are always on the outlook for new resources to engage students during our poetry unit.  One of the best ways to do this is with song.  So, it is with great delight that we discovered one of  the poems we analyze has been set to song.  Take a peek at the post over at Brain Picking to learn more about this new Israeli artist, Efrat Ben Zur:  Emily Dickinson’s Poetry Set to Song by Israeli Singer-Songwriter Efrat Ben Zur

Watch the music video:

Let us know what you think of the video, or better yet, how you plan to use this in the classroom.

Happy Reading!
