Poetry Slam

Poetry should not be confined to the page! As part of a re-creative writing unit, a group of Year 9 students experienced a taste of slam poetry, a genre rooted in performance, emotion and political expression. After researching various slam poets, they wrote and performed their own poems in the Drama Studio. All of the students really embraced the opportunity, considering complex issues and producing some excellent work.
