A poetry slam is an opportunity for students to share their own work with an audience. It also provides a safe outlet for students to socialize with peers in a meaningful way.

Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Informal speech practice (no actual public speaking instruction). 
Opportunity to present work to an audience.
I am a certified English teacher. I believe in making learning accessible to students. Some students believe that poetry is too difficult to understand. I believe any student can understand and appreciate poetry with enough time, patience, and guidance. I strongly believe the best way to explore literature is in a relaxed discussion not in a rigid class.
Homework Offered
Students will need to bring a poem to class that they wrote themselves.
Assessments Offered
The course will not have a formal assessment. You can assess your child's ability by watching the playback of our course to observe his/her oral recitation performance. If parents would like a rubric for poetry recitation one can be made available to you upon email request.
Grades Offered
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
