Class Experience

Students will: 
explore the genre of poetry through the works of a well-known, American poet
develop an understanding of and (hopefully) an appreciation for poetry as an art form
discover that topics for poetry are as close as their own backyards
work on a topic list of things to write about
There is no official homework for this one-time, one-meeting class; however, students are encouraged to begin a topic list for writing poetry and to write a poem in the style of Emily Dickinson after the class. If they choose to write a poem, they are invited to submit the completed poem through to the teacher for feedback.
paper, pencil or pen
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment, comments
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
