The poem "Masks" by Shel Silverstein is special. The entire text is actually an image! This is to ensure students can enjoy Mr. Silverstein's distinctive drawings for this poem. Because it is an image, students cannot use their mouse to select the text and annotate it. This also means translations and read aloud are not available for the text (though students can hear the student intro and questions read aloud).
