National Poetry Month: Educator Barnes Reads – Bronx Masquerade

Early in my teaching career, I came across Nikki Grimes’ novel Bronx Masquerade.  This novel is a combination of poetry and prose.  Not only did my students love this novel, but it gave me an opportunity to help them critically analyze various characters and look at various elements poets can use in their poems.

Check out the video to learn more about the novel and to hear an excerpt.
