Performance poetry


Today in English, we are looking at performance poetry. 


Look at the advert for the Winter Olympics from the link below, listen to how the speaker uses his voice to express the poem. Think about things such as emphasis, pause, expression, tone, volume and pace. All of which can help to get the story across and make it more exciting.


Attached is 'The Dreadful Menace' poem, it is your task today to perform this poem to somebody using emphasis, pausing for effect, tone, volume, expression. Can you include all aspects?
