Poetry Out Loud(*fingersnaps*)
Through October and November, we will perform poetry!
As part of the Poetry Out Loud national competition, all freshmen at ROHS will select at least one poem to make their own, to interpret, practice, and perform dramatically for their class hour, or for still larger audiences!
The basic approach:
|Thursday, October 25||Select Your Poem||Choose only from the Poetry Out Loud website|
|Week of Nov. 1||Analyze Your Poem for Tone, Theme||A variety of class exercises and Moodle work|
|Week of Nov. 7||Practice and Workshop Your Poem||In class and at home, discover the tone/voice of your poem to communicate meaning|
|Week of Nov. 7||Memorize Your Poem||Accuracy is essential!|
|Nov. 14, 16, & 17 in The Roost||Perform for the Class||Rubric to follow, but will basically be the POL rubric turned into the 8-point scale|
|Tuesday evening, Dec. 19||Perform Two Poems for School Competition||For the 1-2 students in each class hour who “win” the class level performance|
|tbd||Perform Three Poems for Regional/State Competition||For the one ROHS student who wins the School Competition|
