Poetry SLAM: Youth Verse Competition

Use this model, based on urban youth poetry competitions, to create an engaging venue for your poets to share their work out loud, with expression. Build class community, have fun, and celebrate your authors' original verse. Resource is pretty skeletal, but the ideas are strong. Prepare for a SLAM by viewing prescreened (by you) videos online so everyone understands the medium. It's more than just recitation.
