Learning Recitation


How to Use This Video

This "Learning Recitation" video was created to illustrate the art of poetry recitation for Poetry Out Loud: National Recitation Contest. Along with the Teacher’s Guide, Audio Guide, and Judge’s Guide, use the video and companion guide to foster classroom discussion. Students can watch these National Final recitations and evaluate the strengths (and weaknesses!) of each, according to Poetry Out Loud evaluation criteria. As suggested in the Teacher’s Guide, discuss the merits of these performances, which ones the students like best and why and how the poems are different when read versus recited. With this practice, students will be better equipped to peer-review recitations and refine their own performances.
