Product Description
This lesson is intended to be used with Sarah Kay's talk, "If I Should Have a Daughter."

From TED: "If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she's gonna call me Point B ... " began spoken word poet Sarah Kay, in a talk that inspired two standing ovations at TED2011. She tells the story of her metamorphosis — from a wide-eyed teenager soaking in verse at New York's Bowery Poetry Club to a teacher connecting kids with the power of self-expression through Project V.O.I.C.E. — and gives two breathtaking performances of "B" and "Hiroshima."

This TED talk and worksheet is appropriate for high school-level English or Social Studies courses.
