Welcome to Our Experiencing Epics and Poetry Homeschool Language Arts Course

Does teaching poetry intimidate you? Experiencing Epics and Poetry gives you the tools to introduce your middle school students to various poetic forms. For the first six lessons, students study epic poetry by reading selections of The Epic of Gilgamesh, The Iliad, and Beowulf. Next, they examine narrative and lyric poetry by well-known poets like Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, and Edgar Allan Poe. For the final six weeks, students explore poetic structures like haiku, sonnet, and free verse.
