Poetry Slam with Middle School students

The whole Middle School is reading Flying Lessons . In reading these short stories by award winning diverse authors, the Language Arts department decided to have our students explore their identity through literature discussions, activities and poetry. We also invited local poets to class to learn about Poetry Slams and to get feedback on their Poetry Slam performances.  For our cumulative activity, we all came together this last Wednesday for our first ever Poetry Slam in the park. Middle school students and 4th and 5th graders were in the audience to support 16 St. Paul's extordnary poets. Some of these poets will be performing at Storefront Records Open Mic & Market Place this Saturday at 12:40. Come out and support our St. Paul's Poets. See you there!
