The People's Poet Transformed

Author(s): Geoff Goodfellow; Rebecca Bond


The People's Poet Transformed is a gem of a book positioned beautifully to engage young people with language so that they see how powerful literature can be created out of everyday life, deeply and sensitively observed. Road-tested by teachers, it encourages students to become creators of ideas and texts and to use language to transform both texts and their own view of themselves as people with stories worth hearing. - Garry Costello, Former secondary principal, English teacher & Chief Education Officer for DECD, South Australia

Geoff Goodfellow has been an outspoken voice in schools over many years, engaging thousands of students through his poems to think about contemporary issues with his honesty, passion and wit. This wonderful publication combines Geoff's powerful poetry and prose with Rebecca Bond's creative teaching practice to provide excellent approaches to the compulsory Transformation Task in the new SACE Stage 1 English course, as well as Stage 2 English Literary Studies. - Alison Robertson, President, South Australian English Teachers' Association

To see Geoff Goodfellow perform is to be caught up in vignettes of experience and observation that become dramatically real. Geoff's collaboration with educator Rebecca Bond is that rare find--an engaging and accessible text that actually works in the classroom. - Richard Noone, Curriculum Leader English, Westminster School, South Australia
