Truman Middle School 8th Graders Pay Tribute To Bob Marley With Poems

Bob Marley “I wanted to get the students to express their learning and understanding about Bob Marley in a way that they could include their own vision of the world they are living in.”

“The poems start with the refrain “Last Night I Dreamt that Bob Marley was President” because I wanted the students to think about the kind of leaders they think should be in charge. What are the qualities that they feel are needed from the future leaders in the world?”

-Christopher Oglesby, Teacher at Truman Middle School
