Students enrolled in Heidi Edmonds’ and Jennifer Pluth’s seventh grade English classes at Ronkonkoma Middle School recently showcased their creative literary talents during a Poetry Slam event. To celebrate the activity, Ms. Pluth’s classroom was transformed into an appropriate café setting for the day, as the students recited their work before an audience of fellow classmates. The young poets were able to explore various types of figurative language and poetic devices, trying their hand at free verse and narrative poems alike.
