Informational Video: Poetry Out Loud Basics

In addition to classroom resources, ArtsWA provides additional support to teachers participating in Poetry Out Loud. Whether you are a returning teacher to the program and want to share it with colleagues who have not been involved, or you are exploring the possibilities of the program for the first time, we hope the video linked below will be a useful resource. This recorded presentation covers program fundamentals and features excerpts of past student recitations and clips of students talking about what the program has meant to them.

For additional resources, visit the ArtsWA Poetry Out Loud Toolkit page.

You can find additional media resources on the State Final: Photos and Videos page, and the Past State Finals: Photos and Videos page of this website.

You can contact us anytime about the program to receive more in-depth support. Email us with your questions via the link below, or to contact us to arrange an individual conference if needed.
