“I caught a tremendous fish….” in Maine

Our Maine correspondent Gregory Greenleaf, teacher at Greely High School (https://sites.google.com/a/msad51.org/greely_high_school/ & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greely_High_School), reports that in January “after finishing a unit on Bishop,” his students created “a post-it note Fish.” On the fish were “lines from Bishop’s poetry, critical essays, and their [the students’] own journals.” The fish measured eight feet long and it was up for a week in the school. “Rainbow, rainbow, rainbow! / And I let the fish go.” Bravo to the students of Greely High.
