My friend Jen and I spent an hour last night clumsily attempting to create a Facebook group for the Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching, which, thanks to advice from a 15-year-old, we were finally able to do. Jen is a teacher from Chicago who attended the conference in 2008 and has wanted to create a place for teachers to easily discuss lesson plans, post videos, etc. It's an open group; you don't have to have attended the conference to participate. So if you have a Facebook account, check it out. Jen is a great teacher, and a great person: the group couldn't have a better administrator. And the Man (aka conference director Baron Wormser) has given it his blessing.
