I will introduce the idea of writing a piece, a poem, rant or manifesto focusing in on a theme or strong feeling. I'll give a lot of guidance and suggestions about how to get your creative flow going and how to present it in a visual or vocal way. I will use brainstorming, mind mapping, sharing my own examples and other examples on the internet of people sharing a rant or manifesto. There will be follow up and ongoing classes launched in the future. Students will be invited to share their...
Students will learn how to express themselves using language and play with some poetic devices such as rhythm, rhyme, imagery and metaphor. They'll begin a creative writing journey that can develop into a powerful tool and has the side benefit of increasing literacy and the pleasure of learning about language. It is also a great motivational tool and can raise the spirit of all who participate in giving energy to the manifesto, such as reciting it aloud with the family.
I am a poet, a creative writer, English as a second language teacher and I have a great deal of facilitation training and experience. I created this course because I feel like having the manifesto or rant poem format available to you as a format to express a strong feeling or thoughts you want to remind yourself of later is a great asset in your personal creative toolkit.
The only homework will be an invitation to continue working on their manifesto/rant/poem & feel free to submit it for positive feedback! I will adjust my teaching to accommodate all types of learning and participation. If your child for example has trouble printing or typing, cutting out words from a magazine and creating a cut and paste collage of words provides options. You will receive suggestions in advance of the class for materials that can be used as per the student's preference.
The learner can show up with nothing and simply use a text writing notepad on the computer to complete the tasks. Alternatively a notebook, some pens, pencils and markers or pencil crayons work well as do collage making materials (paper, glue or tape, scissors) and magazines to cut words out of. These can also be acquired after the class if the student chooses to do work on the poem after the class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no assessment, only supportive encouragement. I will respond to emails after the class with submissions of work. There may be an option to produce the writing into a visual format like a poster or tshirt as well.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
