An independent day school for grades 6-12

Voice as Power

The 6th graders are deeply immersed in a Voice as Power unit, a study of poetry. Drawing inspiration from poems such as Eve Merriam's "How to Eat a Poem," Langston Hughes' "Mother to Son," and Kwame Alexander's "Dribbling" (part of his book, The Crossover), students have already crafted seven poems, not including the ones created during our Found Poetry project in the Maker Space.
 
...And we're still going strong. By the end of this 6-week unit, each student will have composed, edited, and performed approx. 10 poems. That's roughly 720 new poems created since Winter Break!
