FOR DORSEY POETRY SECTION 2004:
THIS SECTION OF W203 HAS BEEN DESIGNATED FOR EDUCATION MAJORS.

TOPIC: POETRY WRITING FOR FUTURE TEACHERS
This section has been specially designated for students from the
School of Education. W203 Creative Writing: Poetry Writing for Future
Teachers has three goals: to further develop your skills in writing
poetry; to read published poetry as a writer reads, giving careful
attention to what makes a poem work; and to learn how to translate
both of these skills to classroom practice. Class time will be
divided between writing workshops, student-generated discussion of
readings, and approaches to creative writing pedagogy. Reading,
writing, and reflection will be approached as complementary
activities; workshops will apply the strategies used in discussion of
published poems toward a practice of critical distance and
application of craft when revising your original compositions.
Likewise it will be important to consider and document how workshop
and discussion experiences will impact your own classroom practices.
Course work will include a final portfolio of ten poems (and multiple
drafts); a writing autobiography; a teaching presentation including a
complete lesson plan on the work of a poet from the course reader;
numerous in-class writings; critical responses to readings and peer
work; mid-term and final self-evaluations.
