From "The Village Blacksmith" to "A Psalm of Life," we will explore the writings of the great American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. What makes him so enduring and compelling?

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
My passions are writing and poetry, and it's my great joy that my five kids can quote Shakespeare and Longfellow. So many students claim to "hate" poetry, but that's often because poetry is difficult to understand. My goal is to give students the tools they need to unlock poems. Like John Keats suddenly understanding Homer once he read the English translation, I want my students to look "...at each other with a wild surmise/ Silent, upon a peak in Darien."
