Music and poetry have always gone hand-in-hand. This past week the English department of Kellenberg has been celebrating National Poetry Weak both in and out of the classroom. One activity the English department hosted was the Poetry and Music Kahoot.
It was held April 27 in the auditorium after school and was open for all students to attend. The two dozen students who attended played two different rounds of poetry-themed kahoots. In the first round they had to decide whether a certain line came from a famous poet or a famous rapper. The second round consisted of identifying a figurative language device featured in a piece of music.
One of the participants, freshman Peter Keller commented, “It was a great opportunity. I had fun. Things like the Poetry and Music Kahoot are a great reminder of all the extracurricular events that Kellenberg offers.”
One of the English teachers running the event, Mrs. Egan noted, “I was glad that both teachers and students could share their love of poetry in the classic and in the popular contexts of today’s music.”
The Poetry and Music Kahoot was just one of the many wonderful opportunities Kellenberg students have had to celebrate Poetry Week.
