Campbellsville High School students are writing poetry and recently presented their poems to their classmates.
In Tyler Hardy’s freshman English classes, students are asked to write several types of poems, including slam poems, I Am poems, haikus, Where I’m From poems, lyric poems and many more.
After their poems are finished, students present them in a Poetry Café setting.
Hardy said the purpose of the project is for students to get to know each other through their poetry, which often evokes emotions such as love, hate, loneliness, fear and much more.
He told his students he hopes they learn they are all experiencing those emotions, and that helps them grow closer.
Students wrote about their life experiences, including their families, school, friendships and relationships.
