Voice 2 Voice - Poetry Declamation Contest

posted Jan 29, 2017, 6:21 AM by Rebecca Tapley
We are very excited to be part of the  Voice 2 Voice Poetry Declamation Contest, a partnership with the Opera House Arts. The purpose of the program is to expose middle school students in grades 6-8 to the spoken word of poetry as a means of developing their voices and expressing themselves.


So far, students in grades 6-8 have been reading at least one poem per day. Students in the 6th/7th grade class worked with Opera House Arts Education Associate Joshua McCarey in a workshop that explored the poem "Patience" by Marylin Singer.  The entire middle school will be working with Opera House staff members this upcoming week as well as poet Emily Stribling.
