As a group, we will read and analyze traditional and nontraditional English-language haiku, discussing form, subject matter, and effect. We will read haiku from various poets, including Santoka Taneda, Ezra Pound, Steve Sanfield, Richard Wright, and Katsushika Hokusai. Students will take a 15-minute break in the middle of the class to write their own haiku. Upon their return, we will share and discuss. Whether they are already poetry-lovers or are convinced it's out of their reach, students...
Through studying haiku, students will learn how to name stanzas, how to measure line lengths, and the effects of various poetic devices (e.g., rhyme). Specific to haiku, they will learn the typical indicators of a haiku, the two-part structure of a haiku, and the specific elements necessary to classify a haiku as traditional.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
