Clayton is a master teacher of communication skills.  With a B.S. in Education, an MFA in Creative Writing, and with his vast experience in writing and performance, he combines it all to inspire and instruct students.  Though he is effective in schools assemblies and one day workshops, his talents are best utilized in one week residencies which culminate with a POETRY SLAM.

One of the most inspirational presentations seen in my 33 years of teaching.  He brought poetry alive for the whole school. (Carolyn Tarver, English Teacher,Greenwood High School)

POETRY SLAM–8 years ago, literally, no one in the world was bringing poetry slam to schools in the fashion that Clayton does.  Poetry slam originated as an adult competition, but when Clayton accomanpied Marc Smith (the inventor of slam) in a school assembly, he returned with a vision to bring slam to schools.

Clayton Scott is an extraordinary talent.  He has the rare ability to capture the attention of all levels of students. (Jerry Valentine, Principal, Alma High School)

By understanding and teaching the FRAMEWORKS, Clayton emboldens the efforts of the teacher to bolster learning in the 21st century learning skills of writing, speaking and listening.  Plus, students have fun while learning!

The students and teachers were blown away by Clayton’s presentation.  He had an instant rapport with the students and his presentation skills were tremendous.  He does all this while aligning his presentation with the Arkansas State Standards.  (Kimberly Harris, Teacher—Woods Elementary—Ft. Smith, Ar.)

More than 900 students were given the opportunity to watch Mr. Scott perform and participate in the workshop, and when we listed our “successes” at our final faculty meeting, our administrator put the “Poetry Day with Clayton Scott” at the top of the list.
