Color of Poetry
The color of poetry is an annual project we work on with Ms. Davis-Aceves's eighth graders (newcomer students who have been in the country less than two years). Students write poems in Spanish and then in English, responding to the prompt, "The color of my skin is..." Through their poems they reflect on the places they are from and who they are, and their final work gets published in a beautiful chapbook! Note: You must be comfortable tutoring students in Spanish in order to participate in this project!
