Advanced Haiku: Haiku for Wordsmiths

Joseph Blodgett
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(1)
In this class, we will review (or learn) the typical American Haiku and then delve into a more advanced and traditional version, including mini-lessons on syllables, meter, and sensory details.

Class experience

Students will learn syllable and meter.
Students will learn to value revising over restarting.
Students will learn how to create two forms of haiku.
Students will learn basic guidelines for effective poetry.
I first created this course years ago for my 7th and 8th grade honors students, who were asking me about poetry in general and haiku specifically. I shared that in 5th grade, I used to write dozens of haiku a day, then said it would take me less time to write an essay than to generate a successful traditional haiku. They were intrigued, so I taught them the difference, and it became a standard for the rest of my classes. 
I am a career educator, with a BA in Teaching of English, a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and an associates in Social Studies. I taught over a dozen years of secondary writing, including honors coursework, and now work with elementary teachers to improve their skill with teaching reading, writing, and social studies.
Writers will need something to chart on and something to write on. Paper, computer, wall; it doesn't matter to me, as long as they can read it and share if they feel the desire.
