Spoken Word Exploration

Below you will find a vast selection of spoken word poems. Some of them are funny, some are sad, and some are angry. Scroll through your options instead of just choosing poems in order. It might be a good idea to watch the first 30 seconds of a bunch of different poems before you choose the ones you will use. Find poems where you can either relate to the message or to the emotion (or both!).

For your exploration, you must view six poems, paying attention to not only the words but also the way the speaker presents those words. After all, spoken word poetry is about the performance, confidence, and selling your emotion to the audience.
