    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because poetry is very fun to write, even if you're not very good at it. It will also help you with your writing and speaking skills.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were reading all the amazing poems I got to read and memorize, and I loved writing poems too. I learned a lot about different kinds of stanzas in poetry, how to use different tools, and different kinds of measurements, such as iambs.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to do this, you have to be able to put your full concentration on it. If not, you will not be able to write very good poems.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is the kind of class that will make you pause at the end and realize that the way you view art-- and especially literature-- has been forever changed. It opens up your mind, tunes your ears, and softens your heart. It makes us better readers, sure-- but it will also make us better people.

    Course highlights:

    Poetry has the ability to inspire awe, joy empathy, sadness, or even rage, and sometimes it inspires all at once. This course teaches you about "The Greats", but even more importantly it teaches you how to recognize what makes them great so that you can go out and rediscover it in other writers. It teaches us how to carry art forward and find new Greats as we go along.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't go in expecting boredom; be ready to feel! This will be as much fun as you let it be. If your focus is solely on the workload or the grade or how "cheesy" you think poetry is, you'll be miserable. Instead go in feeling confident and excited about how much we all wave to learn about poetry, and how much is being created and relearned every single day.
