Exploring Poetry and Patterns
Tuition is $45 per four week period
What makes a poem a poem? Learn the mechanics and different voices of poetry. Discover how to use elements such as sound, rhythm and form to express your own ideas and observations! The books Love that Dog, and Hate that Cat are insightful fiction narratives that explore the usefulness of expressing emotions through poetry. We will also use my favorite book for teaching writing poetry: Poem Making. As we read each book, we will study the poetry quoted in each of these wonderful books, and try writing some of our own!
