This workshop will provide participants with the tools to teach students that poetry can be exciting, risky and full of possibilities while simultaneously creating linkages with core curriculum. We will look at the Harlem Renaissance as one example of a historical moment and make connections between history and the arts through the writing of ekphrastic poems. Participants will learn a range of poetic techniques (i.e. personification, metaphor, onomatopoeia) and will write at least one original poem. Leave with the knowledge to adapt the tools acquired in this workshop for your own Social Studies curriculum.
