Flaco Navaja, Jennifer Cendaña Armas

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: ELA (poetry), Public Speaking (rhetoric), Theater

Students discover the power of the spoken word in this dynamic poetry workshop, featuring performances by artists Flaco Navaja and Jennifer Cendaña Armas from BAM's production of Poetry 2016: Past is Present. Working with a BAM teaching artist, participants reflect on the poems and learn various devices they can use in their own writing. They then generate a poem on their own and another in collaboration with a fellow student.

Each workshop includes a high-definition recorded selection of a BAM mainstage production, an online study guide resource that includes preparatory information and activities for teachers and students, and an engaging virtual workshop facilitated live by a BAM Teaching Artist streamed directly to your classroom.

Leadership support for virtual programming provided by the Altman Foundation.

Major support for the Black Male Achievement Project provided by the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation and the William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust.
