Eighth Graders Visit The Nuyorican Poets Café

In English class, eighth graders have been reading poems and songs to explore themes and various poetic devices, such as alliteration, imagery, rhyme and more. To complement their in-class learning, students went on a field trip to The Nuyorican Poets Café, a New York City cultural icon since 1973! During the visit, a Nuyorican teaching artist and poet performed, the group discussed the culture and craft of the café, then held a workshop which culminated in an open mic for students.
