How to get students to drop a mouse in their writing and watch him probe his way out.
Effects on students
Students transform into more eager and confident writers. They don't see writing as an assignment - they see it as an opportunity to share their voice with the world.

What is Slam Poetry?
Connection to CCPS Curriculum
With the slam method, students know they hold power to command their audience's attention. They become more motivated to make their words and execution count.
Through consistent rehearsal comes a natural eagerness to revise, revise, revise. By giving them the power to choose their words, they become driven to choose them wisely.
Practice really does make perfect. Techniques like Slam Battles help students to see the importance of making their written words mean just as much when spoken. (Not to mention, it helps with their oral presentation skills regarding familiarity with their presentation and presence.)
