Schedule for Poem Recitals
Once a month, you will memorize and recite a poem in class. It
usually takes at least a couple of class meetings at the beginning
of each month for everyone to recite.
The monthly routine goes like this:
- Choose. Choose a poem. Rules here.
- Copy. Write it out by hand, in your best cursive. Good
handwriting practice, and it helps you get to know the poem.
- Submit. Show it to Dr. T. Get it approved.
- Paragraph. Research it a little. Find a YouTube video
of the poem, or some information about the author, or the history
of the poem. Interview the
poem! Then write a paragraph about the poem, explaining why
you chose it, what it's about, and anything else you know.
- Memorize. Start memorizing.
Practice every day.
- Recite. Perform your poem in class. Listen to critique.
- Reflect. Review the video of your recital and looking
at your poem recital rubric. Write a paragraph about your performance
and your plans to improve on your next one.
