    • POEM: The Lesson by Roger McGough (11/5/2007 2:31:00 PM)

      I think that this poem is brillaiant. I think tht a lot of people take it way to seriously, as I have read a few articles about parents being outraged tht children were to read and draw out events in the poem. It is, to me, simply an exprestion about how children don't respect their peers and sometimes theirs peers get very frustrated about this. It wasn't something that was written to say, ' Hey all of you teachers who are frustrated with the lack of respect from your students, do this! ' Not at all! ! I'm a parent myself, my daughter of eight years old has read this peom with me, even she understands the meaning of frustration that consumes people. Sometimes the have to vent, writing is a great way, reading someones elses work is also a great way. It makes you feel better that someone connects with you. I think that it should be taught in every classroom. Again I think it is brilliant and so does my eight year old! !
