Abstract

One of the greatest obstacles that educators must face is keeping all students engaged in their learning. Today schools are searching for ways to make their classrooms not only multicultural in order to appeal to all students, but they are also searching for new innovative ways to engage students. Recently schools have begun to employ popular culture in the classroom to engage students. I propose that schools use spoken word poetry in the classroom to create a multicultural space that is also interesting for all students.
