Product Description

Push students to write, revise, and publish multiple slam poems with this packed Slam Poetry Unit. Lesson plans built around thematically-curated, school-appropriate slam poems will challenge students' notions of poetry AND identity, encouraging them to use their voice and powerful poetic techniques to speak up for what is right and tell their story.

The unit provides enough guidance, lesson plans, and materials for teachers to teach without hours of prep, while still leaving room for students to determine their own topics, audience, poetic devices to learn, and method of publication--choice that will create authentic learning tasks, as well as create a classroom culture that is student-led.

This unit consists of over 160 pages for a 3-4 week slam poetry unit, with the following break-down:

-35 pages of detailed lesson plans

-110 Slide Powerpoint

-19 pages of handouts for scaffolding and integrated assessment

-Link to specially curated slam poetry videos, along with places online to find transcripts

Each lesson plan includes:

-CCSS Standards

-Language Objectives--especially useful for your Emergent Multilinguals (ELLs), but benefits all students

-Mini-lesson--plan and slides

-Work-time--plan and slides

-Share-time--plan and slides

I would love to see this unit plan put to good use. Your students will love watching and writing slam poetry--every year I have students begging for more.

Looking something smaller to put into your current poetry unit?

You might prefer my Slam Poetry MINI-Unit, found here! It includes 5 lesson plans taking students through writing and performing one slam poem and is designed to fit into a larger unit.
