Unsure how to introduce slam poetry to your students? Nervous that they won't take it seriously?

This is my go-to lesson plan to introduce slam poetry to my students. The first day I tried it, I was in an observation, and you could have heard a pin drop in my room. Not only were they engaged, but they were writing about issues they cared about, about issues they wanted to change.

In 4 years, this lesson plan has never failed me, and I'm providing it to you for FREE because I know how much of a game-changer slam poetry can be.

This lesson plan includes:

-Content standards

-Language standards

-One detailed lesson plan

-Editable handout accompanying the lesson plan

-Power point slides for the lesson

This lesson plan is included as the first lesson in my Slam Poetry Mini-Unit.
