Poet Allan Wolf Visits Poquoson Middle School

Author visits students

The Poquoson Middle School library hosted Allan Wolf, an award-winning children’s and young adult novelist, poet, educator, and performer.   As part of Project-Based Learning, Mr. Wolf taught students that poetry sharpens their writing and self-understanding while heightening their awareness of the world around them.  During his presentation he unveiled the  process he uses to demystify poetry so that students were able to develop the elements of good stage presence, allowing the most ordinary of poems to transcend to a higher level of understanding and impact through dramatic presentation.
