In coordination with their literary studies, seventh-grade students enrolled in Geri Cahill’s class at Ronkonkoma Middle School recited their beautifully written poems for family members, fellow students and district administrators during their recent Poetry Slam event. The classroom was transformed to mimic the setting of a coffee house; the stage was perfectly set for the students to deliver their poems to the audience, covering such poetic themes as free verse, cinquain and color poetry.
