Introduction:

Three girls from St.Paul made the croud of students go wild on April 5th at the Logan Center for the Arts. Their act was amazing. They were original and it was just wonderful. What made it stand out from the others is that they were the only ones to add motion to their poem. Also, they stood out from the others because they sang and danced at the same time. A specific line I remember was “pick up the books.” Another one that I heard was “Stay in school and get your education.”

 


Critique:

The quote impacted me because it makes me determined to come to school and learn everything that I can. The theme or message of the poem is you should stay in school and get your education. The three girls were active and not afraid to get on stage. They were acting like they were always on stage everyday. Their outfit was nice and they were all wearing black and it was pretty cool. They were using new school dance moves like the drop, and hit dem folks.




Conclusion, The Takeaway:

Overall the girls were amazing. Their dance moves were good and their props were cool too. I liked their appearance and how they were expressive. They were not afraid to get on stage and they were overall great.

  1. Hi there,

    I love that you described in detail about the way the girls performed the poem and were detailed in what they did.

    I think that this is a nice piece so far, but we can add a few things to describe your experience more.

    For example, when you say:
    The quote impacted me because it makes me determined to come to school and learn everything that I can. The theme or message of the poem is you should stay in school and get your education.

    Why did you connect with this particular quote? What about what they were saying makes you want to be determined to come to school and learn? Why do you think they chose to make this the message of the poem? Why do you think people should stay in school to get an education?

    I think if you answer these questions in the second or third paragraph it will round out the review quite nicely. In your conclusion I would also talk a bit about how the poem made you feel and why it made you feel that way.
