Class Experience

Students will learn about rhyme and couplets, imagery, personification, simile and metaphor, repetition, Onomatopoeia, alliteration, stanzas, and word play use in poetry.
I have taught English and Art for several years at the high school level.  I am currently teaching my 8 year old son at home.
Students will be encouraged to write poems each week, applying the literary devices studied during class.
Students will need access to a printer and basic art supplies for their illustrations (For example, markers, watercolours, or pencil crayons)
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
