On Friday December 16, 2016, Mrs. Walker’s English 9 Honors class came down to the middle school to collaborate with a sixth grade English Class. Mrs. Hudak’s students were paired up with one of the freshmen to analyze and create poetry.
They started their day by receiving a poem and analyzing the meaning. Students gathered together to have a few mini lessons taught by the teachers. Over the day, the groups were able to create an imitation poem reflecting the original. The students had a great time working and performing their poetry to the class. Many felt that the day was well planned and very effective.
The freshmen acted as mentors to the support the sixth grade in their poetry knowledge.Several students felt they gained not only a more in-depth knowledge of poetry, but also expanded on building relationships between the schools. One sixth grader stated “I liked this because we got to work with older kids and now we have a better understanding of poetry and writing!” The freshmen and the sixth graders made many remarks that this unique opportunity was worth repeating.
