“Future Poets” has One Hundred and One Poetry Challenges, Lesson plans, Poetic Devices explained, as well as Copyright-Free poems for speech presentations.

This book is for all my fellow teachers who enjoy poetry and believe their students will become better writers if they keep practicing. Kids often just need something interesting and challenging to write about: that is how this book can help.

This book is a love story, detective mystery, and great American novel. Joe Freedom is a private investigator who finds lost things. Sometimes they don’t want to be found, which makes it all the more interesting. And for the first time since the last time, he’s found love, or thinks he has, shrinks he has, you’ll see. The case: Professor Otis Grille’s daughter Alex is missing and family and friends are clueless as to her whereabouts. Joe and his therapist, Vana Fox, team up to profile Alex, search for her, and learn to love each other. They practice often. Why is Alexandra Grille hiding out at Valley View Rehab under a cloak of deniability and doctor/patient privilege? She paid cash. She told no one. Is she running away from someone? Prose, rap, and other poetic pursuits provide the backdrop for clues and blues and the occasional “Red herrings ball bearings Batman, how is a part-time PI supposed to find someone so intent on being lost?” Does love get in the way? How can it not? Vana’s hot. Can Joe find the professor’s daughter before something awful befalls her? Now that he’s found Vana, can Joe get anything done? Those are the questions. Get your answers.

Humor and Life Stress

This monograph reflects a culmination of influences. Over a decade ago, a graduate student at the University of Waterloo, Dr. Carl Sordoni, had worked with one of the present authors (H.L.) to develope a dissertation concerned with humor. At that time, the literature on humor was scanty. There was much that had been written by philosophers and scholars in literature. But in psychology, especially empirical research in psychology, there was not an overwhelming literature to give substance to the belief that humor was an important element in human affairs. Memories of that dissertation are fond. The findings were disappoint ing, but the execution of the research provided us with much hilarity. Though the dissertation research did not pan out as we had hoped, we had begun to look for the influence of humor in other investigations that we were conducting. Two published studies from that era are described in this book, one of which grew as an off-shoot of a dissertation by Dr. Paul Antrobus. In these studies not only did we find evidence that humor could be predicted and understood within particular contexts, but again we found enjoyment in doing the studies.
