Teaching Poetry in the Schools

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 over 150 participants who participated in the Wick Outreach Program throughout the year.
