Print forms of poetry have traditionally been integral to writing and literature classes. However, for many students, especially those in first- or even second-year classes, the written word and the visual layout of poetic form can be foreign, even intimidating. This session will consider the possibilities offered by oral forms such as storytelling and spoken-word poetry. In addition to considering the pedagogical possibilities of oral performance, this session invites poets and storytellers to share their own original work.
