Looking to add slam poetry to your poetry unit, but too swamped to plan it out? I’ve got you covered. This one-week slam poetry mini-unit is designed to be inserted into your poetry unit, and is packed with 5 days of my best slam poetry lesson plans. It will take your students through brainstorming, drafting, performance-planning, and performing all in a week. It’s the perfect unit to give your students a taste of slam poetry (and get them begging for more). You’re students will never think about poetry in the same way again.
