Class Experience

Learners will learn about poetry concepts and styles to apply to their personal reading and writing.
Students may be asked to finish poetry if not finished during class.  They may also be encouraged to create another piece and share it at the beginning of the next class.  This is not required but strongly encouraged.
Bring blank lined paper (or a notebook) to each class, and a pencil with an eraser. If time permits, the student may add color or a picture to accompany the created poem(s), and may wish to bring coloring materials.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Your learner may need assistance with spelling, ideas, sentence structure, etc when creating or finishing up their own original poetry outside of the class.

For this class:  Your learner must be at least an intermediate reader, capable of reading 3rd grade level sight words, sentences, and text. Your learner must also be capable of short writing tasks at their grade level capacity; be able to visually copy and transfer text from screen to paper; and can follow organizational practices as guided by the teacher, to set up poetry frameworks.

This course consists of 6 lessons, which may take place weekly, biweekly, daily, or on a hybrid schedule.  Please see the list of dates of the course section that you sign up for, to ensure that it works with your personal schedule.

The course outline: (subject to change in level of difficulty and expansion due to individual student needs)

1) Acrostic: Create poetry using your name.
2) Synonym Diamante: Create poetry while learning about adjectives, synonyms, and "ing" verbs.
3) Couplets: Create 2-lined poetry while learning about rhyme.
4) Haiku: Create 3-lined structured poetry, while learning about syllables.
5) Cinquain: Create 5-lined structured poetry, utilizing concepts learned in the previous classes.
6) Concrete Poetry: Create a creative piece of poetry that takes on the shape of the topic of interest. (ex. Student may write a piece about cats and the poem itself is in the shape of a cat.)
