Word Poem On Words

Taylor Mali is one to watch.  He’s a poetry slam innovator as well as an experienced classroom teacher.

And after serving as adjunct college faculty ourselves, we KNOW teaching’s tougher than poetry slamming.

Watch the attached video of Taylor reciting a poem, set simply to a fount of font animation that brilliantly brings his points to life.

After viewing, don’t miss another example in this style, entitled ‘What do teachers make?’

Both of these make us want to widely spread the word.  
And stand up and be heard.  Or read.

Here’s to the outspoken word…especially when it’s animated.
