Yesterday the 8th grade literature class gave presentations about spoken word poetry. It was their final project for the unit we started during our online learning period. They analyzed the poems by looking for figurative language and sound devices. They needed to determine a theme or lesson and share it with the class. Many of the students found that they could connect with the very emotional themes of the poems. Although understanding poetry is often difficult, these students worked hard to thoroughly analyze the poems they chose. Great job!
