For National Poetry Month in April 2019, the Academy of American Poets is presenting Dear Poet, a multimedia education project that invites students in grades 5–12 to write letters in response to poems written and read by some of the award-winning poets who serve on its Board of Chancellors. Students can participate by watching the videos of the chancellors reading and discussing one of their poems. Students can then write letters in response and send them by post or email by the end of April 30. AAP has designed a series of activities, aligned with the Common Core, for teachers and librarians.
