In April, right after their trip to Cuba and spring break, the 8th graders will be embarking on their poetry anthology project.
Students will explore the world of poetry, finding their own favorites and enjoying favorites recommended by TPS faculty and staff. Each 8th grader will compile a poetry anthology, which we hope will grow in the years to come. We will share some of their poetry selections next month.
There are some great events happening this spring, including pop-up readings at 30th Street by Philadelphia Youth Poet Laureate (and SLA student) Otter Jung-Allen, as well as by Philadelphia Poet Laureate, Yolanda Wisher.
