Designed for both teachers and students, this video gives you everything you need to stage a poetry slam at your school. Jay Schroder is a poet and high school creative writing teacher. He started holding poetry slams in his classroom nine years ago and found that these events not only engaged students, and pushed them toward higher levels of achievement, they also dramatically increased student confidence—a factor directly correlated to academic and life success. Eagle Point High School now holds an annual poetry slam in which 80-100 students step on stage and deliver an original poem to a cafeteria filled to capacity with peers and teachers.
