Poetry Slam!

Create poems without writing! Young poets create poems using words cut from newspapers, read their poems aloud, and compile them in a book. This lesson allows the teacher to view each learner's creative process and assess their current command of the English language. Also, for older learners, consider giving them more exact guidelines. For example, you could limit the amount of words they can use, and challenge them to only use  written phrases three words or longer.
