Slam Poetry!

 In Ocean Academy

By: Eileen Catalano, English & History Teacher

Students recently viewed a video of Gayle Danley a former “Slam Poetry” champion; to get a feel for the drama and emotions necessary to become a slam poet.  Slam Poetry is a performance of an original work, unique to the authors life experience.  The emphasis in not only placed on what the poet is saying but how they are saying it.  Ocean Academy students embraced the challenge of “slam poetry” and enjoyed preforming their original pieces for their classmates.
