Class experience

US Grade 4 - 6
This class is taught in English.
Learners will learn about different poetry forms.
Learners will learn how to look at the world with a poet's eyes.
Learners will learn how to use figurative language to improve their poems.
I have a BA in Creative Writing from WWU. I have absolutely loved Poetry ever since I was introduced to it in 10th grade. I write poems all the time and in many different forms. While I have no plans to publish my poems at the moment I am not against doing so in the future. 
I created this class to share my enthusiasm for poetry with learners. I love all forms of poetry, including some of the more complex poems. In a class in college after learning all the basic classical forms we were asked to create our own poetry form for the class. I am not ashamed to say I created a very complex and convoluted poetry form that confused my classmates but that I was extremely proud of because of all the beautiful things I could do with it.
