On this page, you will find a collection of exercises and ideas for teaching poetry, writing and spoken-word in the classroom. Most of these I have developed or collected for my youth and community workshops and classroom teaching.
This page will be updated frequently throughout Oct-Dec 2018. Resources for performance poetry in the HSC ‘Craft of Writing’ will be uploaded soon. Sign up below for updates or contact me for more.
Resources for teachers:
A turning point for spoken-word poetry in schools

Resources and activities for teaching spoken-word poetry can be found at SlamCraft.
You can also catch my presentation ‘Creative Spoken-Word Poetry’ at the ETA Annual Conference 2018 #LetsCreate. Resources for this session are available here.
