A streamlined version of the critically acclaimed RapOetry Workshop involving 4 sessions per class (and an optional recording session for exceptional students). During creation of a collaborative performance piece (in the genre of Rap/Hip- Hop/Spoken Word poetry) students increase awareness of how rhythm (the use of repetition, tempo, and order) is used to enhance poetry, music, and even communication between students and teachers.

- Day 1: Use a range of traditional and electronic sounds for composition.

- Day 2: Compare spoken and written text, and then choose the words appropriate for their message.

- Day 3: Revise word placement and stress to increase understanding of how poets alter meaning through figurative language, puns, and poetic license.

- Day 4: Use vocal, facial, and physical performance cues.

Within schools participating with more than 55 students, the host teacher helps select students who are ready to record. The RapOet returns on a separate day to guide selected students through a 90-120 minute recording session.
Thank You!
The RapOetry Workshop has opportunities for caregivers to be involved as audience members for Solo and Live Band performances.

As for workshops and residencies, 1 focused and considerate caregiver per each 12 students in the class may assist with photographing, videotaping, and of course... participating in fun activities!
