Spoken Word

Middle school students have the opportunity to explore a variety of interests through elective classes. This semester, a new elective option, Spoken Word, allows students to use their creativity to deepen their writing, speaking, and presenting skills. The students have been working on staging and being comfortable with performance. They have been exploring various topics and creating themed poems with backgrounds to help infuse the emotion they want to convey. Presentations have been centered around Christ, things that inspire them and defining who they are through spoken word poetry. “I am impressed with my students’ creativity and thoughtful performance ideas,” says their teacher, Mr. Williams. “They have incorporated instruments and added rhythm to deepen the emotion of their presentations.”
