Students Make Art Real Through Poetry Out Loud

Shakespeare isn’t boring to Kassondra Gooley. The West Central High School senior talks about poetry the way some students might talk about movies or music.

“I like that it’s feelings put into words, and that you can dive only as deep as you’re willing to go, and so it’s kind of like an endless view of the world and gives you so many perspectives.”

Gooley enjoys studying and analyzing poetry, but that’s not all. She’s one of the state finalists in a national competition that pushes students to engage with poetry a little differently than they might in most classrooms.
