The Rhymes Between the Lines: Understanding Poetry (8 weeks)

Poetry pulses the emotion and unspoken moments of human life. Used expertly to convey joy, grief, and goofiness, poetry lives as a testament of understanding and expression. With Ms. Bonney, author of the poetry collection Orange Blossoms, students explore the intricacies of poetry and strive to mimic the patterns and symbolism of famous works. Through interaction and practice with poetry, students gain confidence with words and find their own method of literary expression.
