  1. Poetry SLAM Performance

  2. Perfect Performance • Watch the following example and think about why her performance is engaging. • Look for the following: • Eye contact • Gestures • Speed of delivery • Power of pauses • Tone • Words she emphasizes

  3. Examples “Tooth Brush to the Bicycle Tire” Sarah Kay •

  4. Tone Mapping • Poems are supposed to tell a “story of emotions”, a series of moods that change as the poem moves from start to finish. • Whether or not we understand what everything in the poem means, we can experience, enjoy and convey to others the poem’s emotional drama.

  5. ? Sarcastic/ Satirical they got us love drugged
Like e-pills
so we E*TRADE
like e-commerce
because now money can buy love
for $9.95 a month-click
to proceed the checkout-click to x out where our hearts once where-
I've uploaded this hug I hope she gets it- click
I'm holding my daughter over a Skype conference call
while she's crying in the crib in the next room-click in a worldwhere there are voices that are only read
and laughter is never heard or I'm so desperate to feel
I hope the Technologic can reverse the universe
so the screen can touch me back
and maybe it will When our technology is advanced enough...
to make us human again Angry & Mocking Cynical Sad & Satirical

  6. Watch the following poets and brainstorm names for each tone you hear. • Combine terms if you need to. • “stunned disbelief” is different from “horrified disbelief”

  7. Examples “When Love Arrives” Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye “Rigged Game” Dylan Garity

  8. Mapping Your Tone • On the one side of your poem, indicate what tones your performance will convey in the various sections of your poem. • Draw a line between tone shifts. • This will help you when rehearsing because you will remember to verbally convey all of the tones in your performance.

  9. The Power of a Pause • Your poem should contain areas of speed and passion as well as slower areas that allow audience members to soak in what you have just said. • On your poem, indicate areas that are “red, yellow, and green” so you know when to speed up and slow down your performance. • “On Girls Lending Pens” Taylor Mali

  10. Practice Performance • Take one tone section (3-5 lines), memorize that section and try to convey the tone in front of the class. • You have 5 minutes to prep!

  11. Performance • Reminder: • Rubric Scoring • Bring your poem annotated (typed) to put under the DocCam • You may use one notecard to write your poem and/or analysis on for assistance only • PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!! This is an ESA. • You MUST be here on the day you signed up for. If there are any issues with this, you need to contact Mrs. Cavolt before your class period.

  12. Audience’s Role • Just like at a poetry slam, audience members (who are not performing that day) will be scoring and critiquing 3 performers of their choice. • Critiques will be worth point and cannot be made up so MAKE SURE YOU COME TO CLASS BOTH DAYS!

  13. To Prepare • Submit your poem to (by 7:45 the day performances begin) • I will not give you a grade until it is submitted • Create your note card (poem and bulleted analysis) • Print your poem with the devices labeled • Practice your poem using Tone Mapping and pausing • Memorize your poem and analysis

  14. Good Luck!
