pedagogizing slam poetry
On Thursday, Pierce mentioned how we are trying to pedagogize slam poetry instead of appreciating it as an art. So, I thought that I would use our readings for class in an authentic way and support Pierce's idea with some research....Larson and Marsh (2005) state that "teachers thus need to avoid pedagogizing out-of-school literacies or just simply repackaging them in a school-based framwork..." (pp. 156). Thanks Larson and Marsh for bringing up that point.
