Poetry in Balance
Grades: 9 - 12
Building trust among strangers becomes the common experience at Minds On "Poetry in the Balance." Team building and shared experiences on and off our outdoor learning course are the life-sized metaphors of this day. Student groups work inside and out with the mentors and then process that experience into writing that balances between prose and poetry.
Bill is an adventure learning specialist. While Bill is currently at St. Lawrence University, his checkered past has included a stint of teaching English to high school students.
Bill's workshop is endowed by the
Whiteside-Ehlert Memorial Writing Series
I came expecting techniques and learned the freedom of poetry.
Be expecting me back again! (3rd time) I learned a lot from all of it.
I enjoyed the connection between the poems and the outside activities.
