Book Description

During the early days of quarantine, many teachers turned to poetry to process their experiences. Teacher-Poets Writing to Bridge the Distance: An Oral History of COVID-19 preserves this poetry and teachers’ experiences as they navigated a new reality in education. In the interviews, teachers revisit poems written a year prior, re-witnessing, with perspective offered only by time, the impact of the pandemic on them as teachers and on education more broadly. This anthology offers readers the poems shared across 39 collected oral histories. The full collection of interviews is available for online public access at the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program.
