Young Poets Get Inspiration

Poets and Poetry:  In conjunction with this year’s on-going mentoring between the high school’s and middle school’s Performance Poetry classes, juniors and seniors in Cheryl Adams’ class have paired up with students in Ms. Quinn’s program to create, memorize and perform a “Picture Poem” where they write in response to an image.poetryThis program gets young authors to find a love for poetry and encourages them to continue to express themselves through the written word. Many of the middle school students are inspired to continue with performance poetry and will enroll in the high school level class in a few years. This is what collaboration is all about!
