Poetry Slam Dunk

Students in Anastasia Kourtis’ class poetry slam class at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School spent the year learning about different poets and writing their own poetry. Each week, a new poet was spotlighted. Students learned about the poet then wrote a poem that was inspired by the author. At the end of the year, students created their own scrapbook of original poems. Students designed their own cover, title, dedication page and selected 16 poems for their original book of poetry.
