The People's Poet Transformed

'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 and 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, Pesident, South Australian 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. The People's Poet Transformed is worthy of immediate use by teachers and students; directly relevant to Senior English, Geoff's new book will quickly become a "go to" resource for those seeking inspiration for any transformative task.' - Richard Noone, Curriculum Leader English, Westminster School, South Australia

'Geoff Goodfellow knows all about transformation. His poetry unerringly conveys a multiplicity of profound messages to those from any place or background - important human messages of life, death, love, hate, despair, hope, sadness and joy, transformative emotions all. Maybe, just maybe, burrowing deep into this wonderful new book will assist you with your own incredible, life-affirming personal transformation! Let's open it and find out ...' - Lloyd Cook, English Senior, Geelong Grammar, Victoria
