You will read a variety of poems and hopefully find some that you really love. You may also find a few you don’t like much, but overall you will grow more familiar with poetry. Additionally, this course will include vocabulary, discussion of literary devices such as metaphor and simile, opportunity for copy-work and memorization, and writing activities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
