Taylor Mali Reads "Reading Allowed" Aloud

Alison Morris - February 3, 2010

Poet Taylor Mali is pretty well known in educator circles, and I’m guessing half the world’s teachers have his poem “What Teachers Make” taped to their walls. (If they don’t, they should.) It was only recently, though, that I discovered his poem “Reading Allowed,” which is too good NOT to share here.
Embedded below is a video of Taylor reading “Reading Allowed” aloud. I will warn those of you watching at work that, um, the start of this poem is pretty sexy. If you’re worried someone will overhear and be offended, keep the volume low at the beginning, then turn it up! If you’re worried someone will see you blushing, then… Best watch this one at home.  ; )
