This Set contextualizes the lesson "Choreopoem Performance" developed by teaching artists Becca Barniskis and IBé for the Walker Art Center's Art Today and Tomorrow: Teaching with Contemporary Art teacher workshop.
In this lesson, 6–12 grade students will respond individually in writing to a piece of contemporary art, then use parts of their writing to compose and perform a collaborative poem together. It is designed to span three 45-minute class periods, but could be expanded to fill more. The complete lesson plan is attached as a PDF to the last slide in this Set.
This lesson connects to the following subjects: poetry, language arts, visual art, performance, theater.
