I may be wrong, but they probably picked the term/idea at church -- "popcorn prayer" is something very common in prayer meetings or other religious assemblies. :-) I totally LOVE the idea of students doing a popcorn reading of a poem, awesome!!

I love the idea, too--it worked so amazingly with the poem. I imagine it wouldn't always work well, but that day, and that poem, and those students--they really made it work.
