Comprehending poetry can be difficult and frustrating for students. Fortunately, there are ways to make reading and analyzing poetry fun and interesting! In this class, we will cover two poems per week focused on one particular poetic element or theme. We will read through the poems multiple times, we will break each poem down line by line, and we will discuss the meaning that we are able to take from each piece. Students will also have time to write their own poems that mimic an aspect of...
We will - read a variety of poems from different authors. - learn about poetic elements. - find meaning in poetry. - closely examine the language and style of each poem. - develop an appreciation of poetry. - express creativity by writing our own poems.
I am a licensed English teacher for students in grades 5-12. I spent 4 years teaching English Language Arts in a public school classroom. This involved reading and analyzing poetry. I recently finished a master's degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Missouri.
Students will not have homework assigned for this class.
Students will not need to purchase any book or supplies specific to this course. However, it would be helpful for students to have a notebook and something to write with while attending class.
Students will be assessed on their discussion of the poem. I would also love to read their poetry to see if they are able to use the elements we discuss. I will not assign a letter grade unless parents specifically request a grade.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The poems that we will read and discuss are primarily classics. They may contain themes of love and death. There may occasionally be a swear word, but that will not be a frequent occurrence.
We will frequently use poetryfoundation.org.
