Product Description
Want students to get involved in writing their own spoken word poems, but don't know how? This handout package gives them every step they need to create their own poem.

The process is highly scaffolded, taking them through the steps of creating a good hook, with strong lines and supported storytelling. Having students work through this package allows them to create a personal, meaningful poem without the pressure of having to perform it (that's for extra credit!). All the steps in the package are evaluated and contribute to their mark. I tell them even if their poem flops, I can see all the hard work they've done to get there!
