Friday, March 11, Pearl-Cohn will be hosting its third Poetic Lounge: A Tradition at its Finest. Students will recite self-written poems that express personal thoughts and emotions. The Sound Technology department will orchestrate light jazz music to accompany the students as they recite their poems, and the Visual Technology department will film the event, making the Poetic Lounge a true example of interdisciplinary learning. The Poetic Lounge began in 2009 by Teresita Hunt's English II Honors students. The class was studying a unit on poetry. After the students penned their own poems, they asked to have a poetry breakfast. Hunt agreed to the idea. The breakfast was such a hit, they decided to turn it into a larger event and the Poetic Lounge was born. In these first three years, the Poetic Lounge has grown from 15 young poets to 30!
