Poetry Power - Project Information
This project will bring the creative art of performance poetry to WHS. This initiative will be accomplished through bringing the transformative power of the spoken word to students in grades 9-12 through innovative workshops and interdisciplinary activities supported by MassLEAP (Literary Education & Performance) a collaborative with MassPoetry. Students will participate in a series of interactive and performance based seminars and workshops throughout the school year that will culminate in a statewide Teen Poetry Festival at M.I.T. Performance poetry is a unique venue that provides a way in which students can communicate and feel connected with their peers, local community and greater Boston area.
The project will be a vehicle to empower high school students to use their voice through the genre of performance poetry. Performance poetry is an art specifically geared toward a visual audience. The term became popular in the 1980s to describe poetry composed for performance versus print. There is a continued need for teens to explore areas of creativity in which their voices are validated and celebrated. Performance poetry is a unique venue that provides a way in which students can communicate and feel connected with their peers, local community and greater Boston area.
