I'm using this with a small group who find poetry a bit of a challenge. It's good to have some visual stimulus for discussion and analysis that's not PowerPoint. It's relaxing and reassuring for students who get anxious about lots of text, to have something like this in front of them. It also prevents the spoon-feeding, fill-in-the-gap option that they get to depend on. It doesn't affect their quality of work, either, just makes it easier for them to access the topic. Thanks.
