Class Experience

1. Students will learn the basic structure (three lines/seventeen syllables) of haiku.

2. Students will receive an overview of the origin of haiku and its intended purpose.

3. Students will grow comfortable brainstorming and drafting their own haiku.
No homework will be given, though, if learners don't finish in the allotted class time, they will be encouraged to complete the haiku  they began working on during our session.
Learners should bring a pencil and pen, as well as roughly five sheets of *paper. Crayons, colored pencils, and markers are optional if they want to decorate their haiku (time-permitting). *Ruled or lined paper would be optimal!
No formal assessment will be provided, though learners will be encouraged to share their haiku with their family/friends. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Not applicable
I will share my own haiku as an example of poetic format/content.
