This dynamic poetry class will transform a regular person into a P.O.E.T.
From day one, I will introduce a subject, a poet(s), a poem(s), and dissect, layer by layer, line by line, to demonstrate how one can analyze the colorfulness of the inside(s). Each P.O.E.T. will learn how to digest poems and related ideas as a whole, in order to regurgitate, and spit it out as if it is their own.
With an understanding that poetic language is just like studying any other language, my P.O.E.T.s will be able to
communicate and connect with others more thoroughly, by utilizing and interpreting word choices, dialects, and structure. They will learn how to experiment and manipulate with words as such,
they’ll become expert Poetry Linguists, via our word exercises.
This class will aid in the critical thinking skills that one could use in everyday life. P.O.E.T.s will learn how to paint pictures using words, which will broaden their perspectives. They’ll view ordinaries such as, the history of poetry, to be purposeful and animated!
We will read poetry of all forms, touching on topics dealing ranging from life, sex, everything in between, to death. Great debates will be held on poems that are controversial, and there will even be homework assignments! Homework will include anything from creating original poems, to memorizing notorious poets and artists work, to presenting them at a local poetry spots/café. There will even be guest speakers who’ll come to spread the word.
