I am currently working on my thesis for graduate school, and my topic is centered around the effects of curriculum- based poetry slams in high schools and their effects on teens, particularly at-risk teens. If any teachers would like to discuss with me in detail some of the effects that they have seen with particular students (increased self esteem, motivation, career goals,better grades, increased vocabulary,decrease in drug and/or gang activity, etc.)due to the Poetic License program or other programs, I would really appreciate it! Any information that is offered will be strictly for academic purposes and names need not be mentioned. Thanks!!!! -Chelsey
