Teaching Poetry in the Schools

As part of the Outreach Program, Kent State University students have the opportunity to enroll in the course “Teaching Poetry in the Schools.” Offered through the Department of English, the class helps prepare students to conduct their own poetry writing workshops. These student-teachers are placed in local classrooms and community centers. The course culminates with “Giving Voice,” an annual performance that includes more than 150 readers who participated in Wick Outreach Programs throughout the year.
