This is Me, Poetry
Everyone deserves praise. In this inspiring workshop, students are encouraged to discover their own unique poetic voices and create praise poetry to honor someone very special…themselves! Students are then assisted with the art of performing said poetry in a manner befitting the piece. Participants in this workshop will walk away with a better understanding of spoken word and an original, positive piece of poetry they’ve created about themselves.
Teachers are encouraged to invite guests to view students’ culminating poetry on the last day of the workshop series.
Duration: 3 day workshop, 60 minutes per day
