Burn 10: words that burn

Sakris' Story © Amnesty International

Part of the Words That Burn poetry education series for secondary and further education students.

In this session, students explore case studies and films show that we all have the power to stand up for human rights through poetry.

The PowerPoint shares examples of three-well known poets taking on Amnesty’s Make a Difference in a Minute challenge – to perform a human rights poem in one minute or less. Watch all our featured poets performances and challenge your students to Make a Difference in a Minute.

Please note: One of the recommended film clips 'You Are Not Powerless' contains a swear word.

The deadline for poetry submissions is Thursday 22 March.
