What is Slam Poetry?
Slam Philosophies
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.)
