Students in English III have been studying famous American poets and created their own poetry portfolios. The portfolios featured individual and collaborative poems that reflected the styles and techniques of poets such as Anne Bradstreet, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, and Robert Frost.
One of the highlights this year was a component that celebrated a "phenomenal woman" in the students' lives. After reading Maya Angelou's "Phenomenal Woman," the students made a body biography of a woman they admired. The students enjoyed sharing in a poetry reading!
