TASK

The Task

During this activity, you will select a favorite poem and gather ideas for presenting that poem to the class. You will have the opportunity to listen to famous poets read their work, as well as to visit some more modern poetry "slams" and festivals. It is up to you to decide the best method for performing your poem for the class.  

Once you have completed your research, you will be using the Thinking About Poetry handout, the Thinking About Poetry Notes handout, the links at the bottom of the Resources list, and the Preparing for Your Performance handout to help you prepare for your performance.
