Poetry can seem boring or challenging for anyone! So, let’s learn new ways to teach poetry to our foreign language students so that they can appreciate and benefit from what learn! In this course you will learn and practice different types of poetry. The games, group activities and focus on different types of learning styles will certainly help you create engaging activities for your students. You will be asked to turn in assignments which include lesson plans, power point presentations and reflective essays. If you are a teacher in grades K-12 in the areas of ESL or Foreign Language this course will help you to better understand and incorporate different ways to teach poetry in your classroom. NYS Standards, student’s assessments, goals and outcomes will be addressed.
