"Home page of the Library of Congress Poetry 180 Project...Poetry 180 is designed to make it easy for students to hear or read a poem on each of the 180 days of the school year."
Chosen by Billy Collins, former US Poet Laureate and all round very readable poet himself. This is a simple idea that could easily be supplemented with local content. Collins says: "Listening to poetry can encourage students and other learners to become members of the circle of readers for whom poetry is a vital source of pleasure."
