On April 16, SKTCS students participated in our 2021 Presentation of Poetry "Speaking Out Loud". In preparation, students have been learning about the different types of poetry and composing their own poetry.
Black out poetry was a favorite among students. With this form of poetry, students select a page from a book, a newspaper or magazine article, or another printed text. They then circle or box out specific words or phrases, and then black out or color over all the other words. The chosen words that are left form a new message.
These videos feature students reading and performing original poetry as well as selections from favorite authors.
