Stage Your Own Word War

As part of the Authors Live Teacher Ambassador project, Peter Kelly and Helen Mackenzie, two English teachers from South Lanarkshire developed resources on how to run a rap battle or poetry slam. They did this in response to Authors Live: Poetry Slam, which you can watch on demand.

Peter's resource on how to stage your own rap battle or 'Word War' sits alongside Helen's resource on discursive writing activities to help in the preparation of the rap battle.
