Poetry can be a tough sell to students who would rather be on Instagram or listening to the top 40. But what if they didn’t have to choose between the two? What if instagram poets and chart-topping hits were studied alongside sonnets and haikus? What if it were less about teaching kids how to write poetry and more about learning the limitless styles there are to choose from?

Target Audience: Grades 7 - 12
