Black Out Poetry.... Thirty Decades Later

Just discovered Austin Kleon's Blog, Book, Store, Speaking Engagements.... guy knows how to market himself, not that I'm jealous!!  I insert that 30 years ago, in a rural high school English classroom, my students were creating poems using this same method of subtraction.  To think that a BLOG could make this old lesson plan of making poetry go viral... amazing and somewhat laudable.

Kleon's site includes a plethora of sketchbook ideas, which incidentally is one of the avenues he took to get here.  Might be a good consideration for art education and language integration!
