In order for visitors to view the photos that accompany the student poems, the poems will be available online. Students must submit the text of their poem to Bailly’s turnitin as a Microsoft Word document. This will enable us to copy and paste the poems easily. The online availability of the poems will also allow visitors to read along as the poems are recited and give students the opportunity to share their work wth a wider audience.
