Poetry CelebrationPosted by George Seferidis
On April 24th, Unquowa held its first ever whole school poetry celebration. 7th and 8th graders planned and led a variety of poetry sessions for the rest of the school. Students traveled in small groups and worked collaboratively with students from other grades in each workshop. The goal of this event was to have students be exposed to a variety of poetic forms and devices, including new and fun ways to make poetry. Sessions included “Found Poetry,” “Haiku Station,” “Music and Poetry,” “Spine Poetry” and various listening stations, where students enjoyed classics as well as new voices. We concluded our celebration with an open mic session inviting all students to share their writing. We loved seeing the incredible creativity and fluent delivery of powerful pieces from all grade levels! We hope students have been inspired by this very special day.
