This presentation will explore spoken word poetry in the classroom as a means for self-reflection, self-healing, and self-expression. Attendees will hear student poets perform their poetry and share their processes of writing and speaking through spoken word. Emphasis on the bilingual and bicultural student experience will be presented. Attendees will engage in writing and sharing exercises, and collectively reflect on the potential for transformation within their own learning communities. Special attention will be placed on how students can continually be empowered to share and speak their stories and truths.
