Listen to this dramatic audio performance of “Grasshoppers” from Paul Fleischman’s book, Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices (HarperCollins, 1988). Have students perform poems from this book aloud, or challenge them to adapt favorite poems for a performance in two voices. A fun writing exercise could include writing original poems for multiple voices to perform!
