The East Brunswick Education Foundation is pleased to announce that the following grant has been approved for funding:
During 7th grade, teachers will dedicate a unit of Writer’s Workshop to analyze and discuss figurative language and poetic text. While being exposed to different types of poems, students develop an awareness and appreciation for poetic text as a way to express one’s feelings, thoughts, and emotions. As added motivation and enhancement to the project, each students’ anthology of poems will be hard covered and professionally bound. The final published piece to this unit is an anthology of poems that not only demonstrates an appreciation for the beauty, art, and discipline of poetry, but also an approval of self.
