Up and coming - Eisteddfod Poetry details

Hi all, with camp coming up next week I thought you'd better know about this term's Eisteddfod nice and early. Below is all the info you'll need.

Room 1 Poetry Eisteddfods will be heard in Week 9 of this term.
You will need to recite the poem in a way to make the poem come alive, as the poet meant it to be when read aloud. We are looking at performing the poem rather than just reading it.

Chosen poems should be of a reasonable length - 16 to 20 lines is a good length.
The performance is scored out of 50:

   10 marks for the introduction - state the title, the poet, some interesting facts about him/her if you have some. Why you chose this poem? The meaning you take from the poem?
   10 marks for the preparation - how well have you learned it? What ideas have you used to perform it? Do you bring any props?
   10 marks for diction - how clear are the words? - can we understand all of them? and can we hear them all?
   10 marks for audience suitability - Room 6 are the first audience, and later the whole school - is this a poem that suits this audience? I know that we all enjoy humorous poems, animals, adventures, narrative poems that tell a story and ones with interesting nonsense words.  Many people also seem to enjoy poems that have a clear rhythm and rhyme.
   10 marks for the overall presentation - this is the pure performance and entertainment factor.

Poetry  Eisteddfod Marking
