I enjoy prose and poetry sometime but most of my student does. We continually looks for literature article online so we could use in the classroom.

Hope to have an exchange link with you so we could go back anytime.

I was totally going to leave the link to all the Speak madness from Steph and Lenore but since you already have it I will leave a link to John Green's relationship advice vlog. Not only is he a great author but this video is hilarious!
