We will examine a variety of fall-themed poems and learn more about various poetic techniques and devices, such as alliteration, assonance, consonance, personification, similes, metaphors, imagery, and descriptive word choices. We will discuss the meaning and any application for each selected poem. Additionally, we will practice putting many of the poetry techniques and devices observed into our own poetry writing. Learners will be encouraged to share their writings and provide...
Learners will gain a better understanding and appreciation for poetry as well as be able to identify common poetic devices employed. Furthermore, learners will apply the use of these poetic devices in their own poetry writings and present their original work to their peers.
Limited homework will be assigned, primarily further working upon their own poems, polishing them up before the next day's class.
In addition to Outschool technology requirements in order to log in, attend, and participate in this camp, learners will need to have notebook paper, a pencil, and Word (or other similar word-processing program).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Attendance, participation, and completion of written poems will be recorded by the teacher. However, no formal grades will be assigned.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
