Poetry is Power - Page Text Content

1: Introduction: Throughout this school year and specifically during the poetry unit in my class students have learned to express themselves through poetry. We have studied poetic devices, analyzed, and discussed poetry in all its various forms, and worked toward reaching our own understandings of the pieces read. At the same time, we looked at poetry through the lens of human suffering as we studied poems and poets of the Holocaust; we practiced imitating masters of poetry by writing our own versions of previously published and vastly enjoyed poems; and we worked hard to learn to write without judgment of ourselves or others, because the best lesson a poet can learn is that poetry is raw and vulnerable and teaches us all something different and special regardless of who wrote it, or what they intended to come out of the piece. I couldn't be more proud of the work my students produced this year and I'm excited for you to get a little taste of what they thought was their best work. Each student picked their favorite poem this year and then took a picture that represented their piece. We then edited and enhanced the images and published our work here in this book. I sincerely hope you enjoy the sometimes dark, sometimes funny, and always entertaining pieces they have included in this collection. Sincerely, Mrs. Oqueli
