Product Description
This is the transcript, along with discussion questions, for "Three Ways to Speak English," a spoken word poem by Trinidadian-born artist Jamila Lysicott. It perfect for a spoken word unit to review slant/true rhyme and forms of figurative language. It also brings up important issues about code switching, identity, and who determines what the "proper" form of English is.

This poem is suitable for all high school levels, although I mainly have used it with my sophomore class.
