Word. Sound. Power: Poetry and Community

by  BAM Education

Program image

Students work with a BAM teaching artist to explore the power of the spoken word. Participants are introduced to a professional example of spoken word poetry by artist Jennifer Cendaña Armas from BAM's production of Poetry 2016: Past is Present. Students will reflect on the poem and examine poetic devices they can use in their own writing. Participants will generate a poem on their own or collaboratively with a fellow student, dependent on students comfort level. 


This program can be taught with American Sign Language interpretation. The program can be adapted to serve students with physical, emotional, and cognitive/developmental disabilities. Please let us know if any one or more of these categories describes anyone in your student population at booking and we'll prepare accordingly. 

Sign language interpreters require at least 2 weeks' notice to book.
