An Independent School • Grades 5-12

by Kat Yorks, Upper School English teacher

I recently asked my English students to "poetry bomb" their neighborhoods with some lines from a poem about hope and resilience. I shared a few websites with poems to inspire them, including the Poetry Foundation website and, and suggestions for how to share the poetry. Students “poetry bombed” with chalk drawings, on telephone poles, in windows, and from trees. Here are some of their photos.
