Slam Poetry of the Streets

I try every day to give a little time to reading, watching or listening to things so that I can learn or reflect on both my personal experience or how I provide knowledge to others, my students.  Today as I was listening to the stream of TEDx Sydney I was fortunate enough to see a recording from 2013 of Omar Musa delivering a brilliant Slam Poem that made me think about and evaluate the educational value and views of people in society and schools.  I feel that it would be interesting to hear the responses of my senior students to this performance.  This would be a great stimulus piece.
