Lesson Description:

In this lesson, ESL+Dr students write and perform a collaborative poetry piece in the form of a dramatic monologue. Using DaDa Poetry as method, students team up to produce and perform an authentic poetry piece. The teacher provides a specific poem for each team to deconstruct and reconstruct into an authentic piece as a way to introduce sentence construction and semantic/pragmatic meaning, from words and phrases to complete sentences.

Dramatic Monologue: in poetry, also known as a persona poem, shares many characteristics with a theatrical monologue: an audience is implied; there is no dialogue; and the poet speaks through an assumed voice—a character, a fictional identity, or a persona. Because a dramatic monologue is by definition one person’s speech, it is offered without overt analysis or commentary, placing emphasis on subjective qualities that are left to the audience to interpret.
