There is nothing more essential than identity; that combination of personal, cultural, familial, and social values that gives each student a sense of self. In this class, poets will read and learn to appreciate the poets who really examined themselves through vulnerable, revelatory pieces of poetry as they investigate the art of the spoken word. Students will learn to identify the devices, tools, and imagery that poets invoke in personal poems, while also maintaining a detachment from the page. They will create experimental spoken word pieces to be recorded and collaborate to create an empowering slam piece that will be uploaded to Usdan’s Youtube Channel.
