Language Arts April 3-7

7th graders are in the middle of writing their poetry/rap and with each lines they are writing, students will learn how to pair their words to the beat of their chosen music to achieve emotion and poetic emphasis.  Students are also learning about word choice, metaphors, similes, idioms and other literary devices, sentence structure, constructing a narrative to tell his or her story about adversity.  This is a writing process filled editing and revision, proofreading and practicing; no different than writing an essay.

Two weeks after semana Santa, the 7th graders will debut their poetry/rap into an “open-mic”.  I hope that the students will agree to have their parent see them express themselves in this very modern and urban way.
