Access to a teacher’s guide makes this an all inclusive DVD for educators. Now students of all ages can enjoy the high-energy performances of spoken word in SlamNation.
“No other recording I play for my high school Poetry Workshop classes speaks to my students as powerfully as SlamNation, and the brilliance of this new Educational Edition is its flexibility. The re-edited, fifty-minute classroom version preserves the intensity of the original, condensing the history and richness of performance poetry into the length of a standard class period, and if, like many of my students, you can’t resist the inspired raciness of Beau Sia’s most outrageous poems, two versions of the ninety-three minute film are also available: the uncensored original that is perfect for college audiences, plus a censored, full-length edition that allows high school teachers like me to expose upperclassmen to a range of exuberant, sometimes edgy poets without worrying about some of the more colorful language used.”
