I love Sylvia Plath. I don't know if bringing a huge mirror to school is feasible though.
On  February 3, 2013Elyse Allen answered:
I did my Masters thesis on her so I love her, too. Actually, "huge" may be the wrong word, but kids love this. Some really get into the discussion of our outside beauty vs. our inside beauty. Hope it works for you in whatever capacity you choose to use it.
