Group Challenge: Preparing Students for a Team Recitation Contest

Lesson Introduction

In this unit, students will be introduced to the art of recitation through a group challenge. In groups of three, students will select, prepare, and perform one poem each. Their scores will then be tallied with their teammates. In the spirit of fun and as a new way of introducing elements of our recitation contest, younger students will be able to hone recitation skills, work together, and perform for their peers. Additionally, at the end of this unit, schools have the opportunity to form their team who could go on to compete in our new contest; team regionals.

Learning Objectives

In this lesson, students will have opportunities to:

  • Expose students to a wide variety of poems in our anthology.
  • Hone individual recitation skills.
  • Collaborate with peers for a well rounded poetry performance of three poems.
  • Read and listen to a variety of poems.
  • Evaluate poems based on the Poetry In Voice Scoring Rubric.
