7th Grade Poetry Slam

Authentic Measures of Understanding

Middle School students in Mr. Chris Lord's English class demonstrate their progress in learning about poetry writing with a Poetry Slam during mid term exams. The students were required to write a poem with a minimum of 50 words, about any topic or theme. This was their first formal presentation of an original piece. To capture a bit of the classic "Beat" poetry readings, the students dressed in their "hippest" black outfits and read their poems at our improvised microphone with a crackling fire, jazz and the sounds of a coffee shop to create the mood. Applause to bring the poets to the stage and snaps to show our appreciation!
