Nepris Posts Video of Dr. Gordon Teaching Poetry

Our editor was recently invited to Skype with a class of first graders in Texas and teach them a little about poetry.  The session was facilitated by a company called Nepris.  Watch Dr. Gordon make up a haiku and other poems on the spot with words given to him randomly by the class https://nepris.com/sessions/session/detail/49667.  Note that he gets a bit flustered at the end and misspells the address to his own website.  This gets corrected off screen, and three particularly gifted members of the class become the most junior members of the Songs of Eretz family of poets http://eretzsongs.blogspot.com/2017/03/special-triple-feature-three-poems-by.html.
