Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will learn about different poetry forms.
Learners will learn how to look at the world with a poets eyes.
Learners will learn how to use figurative language to improve their poems.
I have a BA in Creative Writing. I have been writing Poetry for fun since middle school. 
As a teacher one of my favorite subjects to teach is writing. I am especially fond of Poetry because you can say so much with so little. 
I am one of those poets and writers who loves the more complicated poems such as Villanelles, Sonnets, and Sestinas. This does not mean that I do not also Love shorter poems. I find Haikus are especially interesting because so much is said in so little. 
My goal in this class is to expand learners knowledge and understanding of poetry and to foster curiosity about poetry, poetic form, and figurative language. 
Each week learners will be expected to write a number of poems.
Week 1: Learners will write Hyperbole poems, Simile Poems, and practice writing metaphors, onomatopoeia, rhymes and personification.
