Poems for Two Voices

Posted by dogtrax on April 28, 2007

Our study of listening, writing and performing poetry is slowly winding down (Mr. H will bring in his electric guitar, amplifier and drum machine next week to show students a bit about how poetry can inspire songwriting) and our classes worked on Poems for Two Voices in which two people weave their words in and out of each other. Here are a few of the poems written and performed by students.

What kind of poems do you like?

    Very well done. And clever. I like the idea. Is that Mr. H playing guitar in the background? If so, I never he had that talent to add to his list. Maybe all the tech teachers need to put a band together. I play guitar and bass. Hhhmmm.

  2. What a fun podcast! I liked the variety of topics and voices. I wanted to share one of my favorite poems for two voices. It was written by a friend who teaches 8th graders. Sorry it’s not (yet) available as a podcast – A Graduation Poem for Two

    Wow! Those sounded really hard to perform. I loved the way these poems weave together and bounce off each other. Each poem made me keep guessing about what someone was going to say next. I would like to hear more of these poems!

    Those poems were so cool! I love the way two people would talk at the same time, it was just like real life, people competing to tell their story first. My favorite was “No one tells us what to do”.
