Poetry notebook-copying poems
I want my students to pick a few poems that really speak to them and put them in a poetry anthology. They will also write during writer's workshop and those poems will go in the anthology as well. My question is this, since students will copy a few poems they have read during reading time, should I include some sort of bibliography since they will be using poems from various poets? I've never thought about it until now.

I would
It is never too soon to teach the importance of citation and the danger of plagiarism...I would have a bibliography, even if it is an easy modified one. Start good habits, and let them see that whenever you use someone else's ideas you need to give that person/source credit.
