Holly Turner
Nominated by Marc McQuinn
For the CTPS GX
In the dimension of Analysis


In her analysis of a poem about the history of Vietnam (History by Thoung Voung-Riddick), Holly looked beyond the words on the page and was able to explain the poets intentions and purpose in writing the poem – exposing the poets much deeper messages. The best part of her analysis was the insightful way she explained why the poet used only 31 lines to describe more than 1,000 years of history – Holy wrote “A brief poem can enlighten people and educate people without them getting overwhelmed by it.

Good job Holly.
