US Grade 8 - 11
Welcome! This course will help learners build a foundation in reading and listening to poetry, writing poetry, and developing deep writing skills. The purpose of the course is for the students to learn an appreciation for poetry and to also feel comfortable writing poetry of their own. I am very cognizant of the fear students may have sharing their poems and ideas, so I will always take that into consideration throughout this course. Below is a schedule of the lessons we will be exploring...
Learn how to write new poems, improve reading and writing skills, tap into your creativity, and learn about some super cool poets!
I have been teaching English (literature, poetry, etc...) for over 20 years.
Homework OfferedLearners will be given enrichment activities to do each week, based on the poem form we are discussing.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedI will be providing much feedback (written and video feedback) when enrichment activities are turned in or posts are made in the Classroom.
Learners will be provided poem templates. It will be helpful for learners to have a magazine or old book that can be cut up, scissors, glue, paper, for one or two of the activities we do.
