Ms. Word's and Ms. Hale's 8th grade students have
written and published poems as part of the Poet Warriors Project, a national project
dedicated to helping students use poetry as a medium to explore identity,
family, community, and place. The Poet Warriors Project encourages all audiences to
turn an ear to these young, diverse, and historically underrepresented writers,
so together we can affect change.
Our students' poems are published alongside others
from around the nation and can be viewed at http://www.poetwarriorsproject.org under the Jacksonville Region.
