PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introduce students to the world of slam poetry with this digital and print, no prep resource. Review poetic and literary devices, create a shared definition of slam poetry, and generate slam poetry topics for writing using "top ten lists." Teaching poetry can be a fun, interactive, student-centered experience that engages every learner! #tptdigital

★Students will lead review and teaching of poetic and literary devices using the "Poster-Sized Poetic Terms" assignment. Assignment sheet, one-point feedback rubric, and pages for student notes are all included in both digital and print formats.

★What is slam poetry, anyway? Debunk misconceptions and build student confidence through class discussion of Sarah Kay's TED talk and collaborative definition of slam poetry.

★Make topic generation easy and fun using top ten lists. 40 top ten lists are provided - an abundance of brainstorming potential! Students will use these lists to select interesting, meaningful, and story-driven topics: their "final four."

★Provide a clear slam poetry summative assessment assignment sheet and rubric for student writing, performance, and self-reflection.
