POETRY OUT LOUD VISITS LI -- Poet Morgan Irons, of Calais, visited Lyndon Institute to work with students as they prepare for the Poetry Out Loud (POL) competition. Irons worked with the students in each of the English classes on their presentation and their delivery and offered tips to get the most impact out of their poem for themselves and the judges. She is pictured here discussing Laurel Goodwin's recitation of Lord Alfred Tennyson's "The Charge of the Light Brigade." Poetry Out Loud is a national competition for high school students in which the students recite a poem of their choosing from the approved POL list. Each year, students at LI choose a poem and through classroom readings and school-wide competition, a school champion is selected to compete at the state finals in Barre in the spring.
