Lopezland Poetry Slam
By Emy Lopez
- Grades: 6–8
Students will begin a very exciting journey into the world of poems by learning the basic elements of poetry. They will experience and learn these elements by reading various poems; listening to music lyrics and ultimately creating their own poetry for the annual poetry slam…I call mine the "Lopezland Poetry Slam." A poetry slam is a culminating project that allows students to show off their ability to incorporate the elements of poetry into their own poems. Through writing and speaking poetry, students develop oral language and presentation skills.
- Write an "Ode" using the concepts covered.
