About this Grantee

Through the “Basketball Poets Program,” Ms. Mentzer and Ms. Allen use basketball to motivate students to analyze and write poetry. Students write an original poem to participate in the group. Dividing their time between basketball and poetry, students study poetic theory and host visits from professional poets and actors. Students read poetry or a dramatic text for the group, school, and community and create books of original poetry.
