"Breathe In Experience, Breathe Out Poetry" -Muriel Rukeyser
Students were able to discuss, explore, and create in their groups. Each student had something of value to add at every centre. I was so impressed by their ideas and their collaboration.
When asked in an exit card what they learned today their responses were thoughtful and reflective:
"I learned about other people's experiences and perspectives"
"Everything you know can be poetry"
"Sometimes less words means alot and help me believe that poetry is more than it seems" [sic]
As a follow up, they will be using this activity to create poems of their own--I can't wait to read what they create!
Thanks Ms. Di Raimo, Ms. Verardi and Grade 7's!
