Volunteer Now!

The Ideal Volunteer:

An accomplished poetry slam competitor and/or a published poet. Creative, expressive, captivating, and edgy (but school appropriate).

Read About This Project:

Students will study poetry, create their own poem, then perform their poem in front of their peers. They are required to read and perform with expression, using verbal and non-verbal techniques that we will study in class. A digital volunteer would share his/her experiences in the world of poetry performance, answer questions students have about performance and writing, and would give tips about writing and performing quality poetry with honesty and expression.
