This poet social network connection was created by English 11 students at Charlotte High School in Charlotte, Michigan in the fall of 2007.  Each student has researched a poet and assumed their identity to create a page for the poet from first person point of view.   Some of their research may also be presented from their perspective when noted.  By creating this social network we've been able to explore connections between our poets and other poets.  We've also been able to connect to other resources on the poet and make relevant the work of these poets.
