Program Description

Finally, a way to make language arts and classic literature entertaining, exciting and fun! The Sonnet Man introduces and makes Shakespeare accessible to students through the medium of music in a genre they know and love – Hip Hop!

Devon Glover, an artist, teacher and modern-day Sonnet Man, delivers sonnets as originally written, and then breaks them down into today’s “spoken word.” Students are inspired, motivated, and educated as The Sonnet Man raps Shakespeare’s sonnets to energetic beats. On-stage volunteers and audience participants then get to make an attempt at rapping Shakespeare with The Sonnet Man as their guide.

Throughout the assembly, participants also engage in other activities with The Sonnet Man, including songs with call-n-response prompts, multiple choice questions, storytelling songs, tongue twisters, contests, and more. The Sonnet Man Brings It!

After your students see The Sonnet Man, they will come away with a greater enthusiasm for learning, an increase in creativity, improved confidence in their communication abilities and literacy, and a greater appreciation for, and desire to participate in, the arts.

Perfect for schools, theaters, and organizations of all types, The Sonnet Man offers performances and Shakespeare workshops that both entertain and educate students. Mr. Glover’s flows, and presentation and teaching abilities, embody a richness of Shakespeare’s language, and his passionate, yet natural delivery offers inspiring and creative experiences audiences of all ages love – kids, teachers, and parents too!

Sonnet Man Shakespeare Writing Workshop

In the more intimate classroom setting, Devon works with students to learn about Shakespeare, what is a sonnet, metaphors and similes, what is a couplet, what is an alliteration, a 15-minute writing session and group discussion.
