This is some text inside of a div block.

About this course

The purpose of this course is to teach students to identify, appreciate and compose a variety of poetry styles. We’ll be exploring haikus, ballads, concrete poetry and other styles. In addition, we’ll focus on learning rhyme scheme, metre and other mechanics of poetry as well as figurative language.

What you'll learn

Each class will begin with a 5-minute warmup activity to introduce that week’s poetry style

Students will identify what makes that style of poetry unique from other forms.

Students will explore examples within that week’s poetry style

Students will compose their own original examples with feedback and editing suggestions.

Students will share with classmates and teacher to get feedback.

End-of-the-Session Project:

By the end of the semester, students will have a collection of poems that they can publish into their own book or album.

Materials & Homework

Students will be required to complete class assignments that weren’t completed in class. Most of these will be unfinished or unedited poems. Outside of class writing will be kept to no more than an hour weekly.
