TVOKids Teacher Power Hour

Introduction to Slam Poetry | Junior Lesson | TVOkids

Join teacher Jenny as we explore the writing form of Slam Poetry (Spoken Word). Slam Poetry combines writing, competition, and audience participation with performance. People write poems to express their thoughts and feelings about a topic and then perform the poems in front of an audience. Learn how to express yourself as a writer and learn how to communicate for a specific purpose and audience. We will use slam poetry to communicate a message about a specific topic of interest in an effective way. We will listen for inspiration and use discussion to make me a stronger writer.
