Intro to Spoken Word

INTRO TO SPOKEN WORD (AGE RANGE: MIDDLE SCHOOL)

Description Students explore Atelophobia (the fear of imperfection) through poetic expression using popular music. This camp will help them overcome anxieties in a fun, creative way so they can communicate via performance for classmates, friends, and family.

Students explore forms of poetry found in lyrics, create spoken-word pieces relating to Atelophobia, and incorporate creative performance techniques. A vision board will reflect positive self-imagery as the cover art to their pieces. Students finish with a showcase performing their stories at an event for all and close with a moving impact statement.
