Your students put on the show! Like our performances, our residencies are designed to help each school achieve the goals of its curriculum. Poetry Alive! develops each residency to fit the educational philosophy of the school. For greater effectiveness, we consult with teachers and administrators many times before ever visiting a school. This preparation allows us to set up a structure that teachers can use year after year. Our goal is to introduce the concept of the “poem performance” as a mechanism for increasing the students’ appreciation and understanding of poetry.
Both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) options are available for this program.
