PIA: from August 16, 2014.
One of my favorites for teachers, from Poetry 180. When a student asks if s/he missed anything when s/he was absent, you might consider referring the student (4th-12th grade+) to this poem. Full poem here:
from Did I Miss Anything? / by Tom Wayman b. 1945
Nothing. When you are not present
how could something significant occur?
