This packet contains everything you need to put together a successful poetry slam, including an educator's breakdown for the five day unit, all relevant student handouts, and photos of student poetry slams and poetry slam programs. After helping students put together more than fifteen poetry slams both in the United States and abroad, my curriculum has come together into a solid unit that has produced fantastic results for me year after year.
The unit includes an introduction to slam, a guide for viewing and judging fun slam clips online to get a taste for performance poetry, a description of the 3 committees needed to put together an effective slam, a choral reading assignment to introduce performance techniques, and a slam poem brainstorming sheet.
