Description

MSQI is partnering with Urban Word NYC to launch Words & Verbs: Middle School Poetry Slam League. Participating MSQI schools will implement either an 8-session performance poetry unit (spring sprint) beginning in May, a one-day school take-over, or an integrative approach embedded throughout the school year, including teaching artist visits from Urban Word NYC, hosting your own in-school slams, and then sending your strongest poets to participate in a citywide middle school poetry slam in June, hosted by professional spoken word artists at an esteemed performance venue.



Professional development for this initiative will occur the afternoon of Wednesday, March 14, 2017 from 12-3pm. To participate, please identify a teacher to lead this effort, either during your strategic reading period, in ELA/Social Studies classes, or after school, and sign them up for the Wednesday, March 14, 2017.
