Product Description

Explore a different form of poetry with students through the spoken word. Explain how Slam Poetry focuses on the presentation of the poem as much as the poem itself. Spend time watching YouTube videos of various Slam Poets and hold discussion about what is observed during the video; talk about the theme and how it relates to society as a whole, as well as students' personal lives. Allow students the opportunity to write a slam poem of their own and host an “Open Mic” in your classroom.

This bundle includes: Google Slide Presentation w/ embedded videos, Student Note Sheet, and a Write-your-own Slam Poem document.

PLEASE NOTE: The Google Slide Presentation link can be found in the "TPT Shop Info Doc."
