Description

Our class is currently studying different forms of poetry.  We have looked at Sonnets, Haikus, Edgar Allen Poe, Maya Angelou and will be studying Slam poetry and Hip Hop as poetry.

We are also studying figurative language and different stylistic elements that go into poetry and creative writing.

Key Questions

It would be great to share how they got where they were, and what schooling they needed to follow this path.

Maybe even share some of their inspirations and how they got started with poetry.

How they think poetry is changing and what is the big difference of being a poet now versus being a poet in the past.

Expected Outcomes

I would love to have a poet come in to the class for my two sections of students and run a writers workshop on poetry or just share their experience as a poet and how they use the creative process. 

Create a writing activity to get the kids writing their own poetry
