Eighth graders worked on poetry in English class this week as the students wrap up their justice unit. Students have read various texts on standing up to injustice, from the Holocaust, the Salem Witch Trials, food justice, coerced confessions, police brutality. Students wrote poems from the point of view of characters in the book who they  believe stood up for justice, either through political protest, marches, disseminating information, leading court cases or legal appeals against unfair decisions.
