Professor Newton was one of the teachers that was involved in bringing St. Rose students to the New Scotland Elementary School. Miss Marcie was able to bring in lessons in poetry and conceptual art. She also worked with the 24 students to learn new ways of expressing how they feel by making poems. Because she took the time to show these students how poetry could be a fun thing, they were all able to make their own poem. And in the end, they all were allowed to dress up in a way that would reflect their poems and read them to the class.
You can listen to Miss Marcie share her ideas about the poetry workshops and the value of service learning using the players below.
