Poetry performance

There are many different strategies for performing a poem chorally including:

*inviting the whole group to join in on a repeated refrain
*reading a poem with two groups in a call-and-response method
*students volunteer for solo lines in a linearound approach
*adding physical movement suggested by the words of the poem
*putting the poem to a familiar tune and singing it
