A Poetry Slam

Are your students experiencing the winter blues? One way to boost their mood is to have a Poetry Slam. "Simply put, poetry slam is the competitive art of performance poetry. It puts a dual emphasis on writing and performance, encouraging poets to focus on what they're saying and how they're saying it."  (via The University of South Dakota).
