Ms. Chapman’s English II Honors students wrapped up the Poetry Unit on Friday at Melissa High School by participating in a Poetry Cafe reading.

Students put together anthologies, each featuring:

  • An autobiography
  • Six original poems – Frame poem, Where I’m From poem, Color poem, Ode, Blackout poem, and Allusion poem
  • Two annotated poems using analysis acronym “TP-CASTT”
  • Project reflection

The Cardinal Cafe sold goodies while students encouraged one another to share inspiring pieces aloud.

“It turned out to be a combination of silly, sassy, deep, and powerful,” Ms. Chapman said. “I think they found a love for the genre!”
