Description

Class Experience

Learners will develop an appreciation for a well-known poem and will be able to identify key poetic features as well as explain the meaning and sentiment of the poem.  Furthermore, learners will begin to apply some of the discussed poetic devices to their own poems. 
Learners will be guided in beginning to write a seasonally-themed poem in this workshop and will be encouraged to share what they have finished within the allotted time.  Some learners may finish the workshop with a completed poem under their belts; others will finish a portion of their poems and be encouraged to complete them after the workshop.  Learners may opt to submit their completed poems to the teacher for written feedback, if they so desire, after the workshop.
In addition to Outschool technology requirements in order to log in, attend, and participate in this workshop, learners will need to have notebook paper and a pencil.   
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners may opt to submit their completed poems to the teacher for written feedback, if they so desire, after the workshop.  There will be no assigned grades for this workshop.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
