MS Poetry Cafe a Success

     Mrs. Jank is a middle school English teacher, and while teaching about poetry noticed that her students thought that all poetry had to rhyme, which produced some not so great poetry. To fix this problem, she had the idea to create a Poetry Café. Mrs. Jank set up desks to look like tables, dimmed the lights, and brewed coffee.
     She ended up having about 45 students participate, making the students want another chance to share her poetry. Mrs. Jank says there is a possibility for another Poetry Café 4th quarter. In the end, she feels the students greatly improved, focusing more on what they wanted to say and less on rhyming. The Café was a success.
