Monday, November 19: Visit to the Poetry Club at Ft. Dorchester High

A pure delight to spend an hour or so with members of the Poetry Club at Ft. Dorchester High School this afternoon. Twelve of us sat in a circle and shared some words, lines, and poems. We did several activities, starting out with building a word bank and writing a group poem, which we read a couple of times, round-robin style. After looking at several strategies for writing poems, I had the pleasure of hearing some of the members read their poems.

Thanks to the Club and their sponsor, Donna Miller, who's a Media Specialist there at the school, for inviting me!
