Now more than ever, we must take advantage of students' increasing fascination with graphic images as opposed to written words. "Reflect and Write" capitalizes on this situation by marrying dynamic images to original poems that were written by students at the junior and senior high school levels, teachers, and other writers nationwide. Additionally, the work contains key words, as well as popular quotations by well-known authors, designed to inspire critical thinking. Taken together, the more than 250 poems, photographs, and quotations will help stimulate spirited class discussion and provide prompts that will evoke meaningful writing by students. Like Kellner's previous best-selling book, "Write What You See," "Reflect and Write" will encourage students to read, relate, and respond to modern verse and inspiring photographs both verbally and in writing. The book includes a CD with a copy of the photographs.

When my copy of Reflect and Write came in the mail, my husband, a retired English teacher, grabbed it and started thumbing through it. His response? "Neat." I agree. This book is full of accessible, but complex, evocative poetry, and the pictures that go along with the poems add dimension. As a retired college English instructor, I only wish I would have had Reflect and Write when I was teaching and I plan to suggest to my former colleagues that they give this book a try in their English composition classes.

The writing prompts that appear with most of the poem/picture combinations are through-provoking, yet succinct enough to allow students latitude in writing their responses. The section, "12 Ways to Inspire Your Students to Write," contains helpful tips on ways to use the book to motivate students. The list of themes and related poems is helpful as well.

Even for those of are teachers, this book is a treasure. Elizabeth Guy and Hank Kellner are to be commended for compiling and editing such a fine work.

I must first state that I bought this book primarily because it contained a poem by a friend of mine. I also hoped that it might be useful in the adult poetry workshops for senior citizens that I teach three times a year (even though the cover blurb indicates the book is for grades 7-12).

I have gone through most of the book now, and believe that it will be a good source of inspiration for adult poets as well as for young people, and I expect to make use of it in future courses. The poems are printed in a large font, which will also aid older poetry students who sometimes have difficulty reading smaller formats.

The cd that accompanies the book contains pdf files of the poetry pages and the figures; these would be useful for courses in which the materials selected for assignments could be posted for student access.

In summary, I think this book will provide inspiration and poetry prompts for both young and adult students.

I was excited with the notion of pictures and poems to help prompt my writers. The bonus bump of a CD--well that put me over the edge even when my very full shelf was talking back to me like Donkey "chose me chose me."

You can imagine my disappointment to find the CD was locked. Why include it if not to make a nice clean copy for classroom use?

It has been a while since I taught poetry, but when I did I often made use of art, photography and quotations to act as writing prompts. So I appreciate the compilation of poetry, photography, quotations and questions in this book.

The photos are well-chosen, helping to elucidate the themes of the accompanying poem and spark students' imaginations. (The image of three nuns watching a "Spirit Cruises" ship next to a poem about longing to travel made me smile.) Each poem also includes key words that students can discuss as well as questions about the theme, or ideas for writing assignments. I particularly like the quotations from famous people on each page because they often offer a wryly dissenting opinion from the poem. (A particularly peppy poem entitled "I Love a Parade" is followed by the Ulysses S. Grant quote, "The one thing I never want to see again is a military parade.")

There were, however, some things I wish the authors had included but didn't. There are no author bios for any of the authors of the poems (except Elizabeth Guy and Hank Kellner). There is a symbol indicating if the poem was written by a student or not, but that is the only information we are given. As a reader, I like to have at least basic information about a poet that may help me understand the context in which they write. And as a teacher I like to have that information to share with the class or as a prompt for further research.

Speaking of missing information, the introduction mentions that part of the proceeds of the book will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. What, no website? No two-line blurb about the charity? I want to know more!

Alas, these are things that will have to wait for the second edition.

On a positive note, I did love that the authors included a section on internet resources for teachers, including websites to help students get published. They even included a Canadian site (The Claremont Review)!

My partner Mike, who teaches junior high (middle school) English and Social Studies, said that he often finds poetry a difficult subject to teach, so he likes to have a variety of resources available. He especially likes that he could pull this book off the shelf and have hundreds of poetry lesson prompts at his fingertips. (See? It's insight like that that is the reason I always ask his opinion when I'm reviewing books for teachers!)

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for writing a review, though the review did not necessarily need to be favourable, just honest. I frequently read and review books for this reason, but I am always very truthful (and, I hope, fair) in my reviews. Therefore any opinions expressed are strictly my own.

As a teacher of writing, I am keenly aware of how difficult it can be to get some students to take the great leap of faith that allows them to let go of their inhibitions and write freely and creatively. Sometimes it seems that no matter how many prompts I come up with, it just isn't enough to break down some walls. And that is why I love the new anthology Reflect and Write. Hank Kellner and Elizabeth Guy sought to put together an anthology in the style of Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle, and they have succeeded and gone far beyond the original by adding elements such as keywords, quotations and writing prompts to the poems and photos that comprised the original work. Further, they have reached directly into schools themselves for contributors, with several of the poems and photographs coming from high school students and teachers, an even greater connection to the intended audience. This book should be a staple in every classroom in the country.
