Poetry 101: How to Read and Understand Poems!

Each week, we'll read a new poem together and then discuss it from both an academic and creative standpoint-- discussing elements like voice, rhythm, symbolism, allegory, as well as how the writing affects (or doesn't affect!) us.

Class Experience

This class is taught by Tiffany Schmidt.
In addition to spending seven years as a sixth grade teacher, I’ve taught kindergarten, preschool, and worked extensively with middle and high school writers as a tutor. I have a Master’s in Elementary Education and a B.A. in English, both from Lehigh University. 

Oh yeah, and I’m the author of nine novels for teens and tweens, as well as the momma of three impish Schmidtlets. I’m looking forward to connecting with young writers and readers on Outschool. My goal for my students is always for them to Grow and Glow—knowing it’s safe to try hard and take risks, while feeling good about what they accomplish. My teaching style is dynamic optimism and I can’t wait to write together! 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
