Balmville 5th Graders Present "I AM FROM" Poems at Vassar College Youth Conference


Balmville scholars from Ms. D'Amico and Mrs. Crozzoli's 5th grade class wrote "I Am From" poems as part of their classes' third Social Justice unit focused on Identity and LGBTQ+ rights and history.  The students were charged with exploring their own identities and the importance of self awareness. Through their work, the students acknowledged how their treatment of others shapes their core identity.  The students read numerous pieces of literature and then worked through the writing process of editing and revision to finalize their poems.  

 

Once completed, the scholars presented their work at the Transformative Classroom Learning Youth Conference held at Vassar College on Wednesday, May 25th.  The young scholars were greeted and praised by other students and teachers for their amazing presentation, which they concluded by shouting out their class Instagram page.
