It’s final prep time for your slam poem. Click on the link below, watch the video, and follow the lesson. Your responses will count as a HW grade.
After the video, it’s time to read your poem aloud. I mean ALOUD! Find a space and let it rip! Make edits as necessary, make revisions, trim the fat, but make sure you keep the heart and soul of your poem. Now read it ALOUD again. Repeat these steps as many times as is necessary.
Memorize your poem. You can have a printed copy (make the font large enough to easily read) in front of you if you wish.
Remember: Rhythm, Rhyme, Repetition, PIPES, and PASSION!
Your poem should be 1-2 minutes long, as it is presented. Practice and see how long yours is.
