Poetry for Prospective High School Teachers

Carret icon

(4 cr.) This course is an examination of the way poetry operates as a social practice, one that uses many forms and one that has served different purposes at different times. To that end, students examine a range of British and American poetry throughout literary history, in both form and technique, and attempt to situate it culturally. Although this is considered a genre course, it focuses on why students might want to read poetry and what they do with it, rather than defining it as a stable and universal category.
