The world’s shortest poem, haiku, is a great warm-up for better writing. This easy-to-learn, three-line poem teaches important writing skills, like picking the right word, describing a scene and using the five senses. Poet and former homeschooling mom herself, Angela Leuck will present haiku basics in Workshop 1 so that students can begin writing their own haiku immediately. In Workshop 2, students will share and edit each other’s poems without knowing who wrote them. This “anonymous” approach makes editing lots of fun and creates greater writing confidence.
