The Stanford Spoken Word Collective teaches twenty five poetry workshops a year to elementary, high school, and college students. By teaching spoken word poems as performed arguments, the group utilizes the excitement of spoken word and slam poetry to teach the literary elements of metaphor, diction, rhyme, word order, alliteration, and more. The group specializes in collaborative writing techniques to get kids over writer's block with team-based approaches to writing. For more information about teaching spoken word and slam poetry in your classroom, check out our "Toolkit for Teaching Spoken Word and Slam Poetry" below.
