"Future Hoopsters" by Avis Harley

Here is a "poem movie" for Avis Harley's poem, "Future Hoopsters," created by graduate student Kendra Hensley. Look for it here.

This poem is featured in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School in the sixth grade section, week 31, for the theme, "Different Forms" (of poetry).


  1. Very nice! I like the way the video shows the player first visualizing, then missing, and only later scoring. (And turning into Larry Bird!!!) This is a great time to show this video in the classroom, with the NCAA men's championship game happening tonight and the women's championship game happening tomorrow!

  2. Thank you for your nice comment. This is definitely basketball season. My students really like the video, especially when they find out it is my son shooting and reading the poem. :)

    1. Your son did a super job--and what a good sport to help with this!!
