Teaching Style: As an instructor my teaching style is mostly lecture based. I will provide an initial powerpoint on the first day with access on how to construct poetry. I will have all poems we cover available to you via links and pdf. I love discussions that center around the poem, our experiences, etc. I teach each class as if I’m a student as well and I can’t wait to learn from you as well.
