Reflection: Analyzing the Complex in the Simple: A Study of Haiku - Section 3: Haiku Writing


Students often struggle with writing poetry. They also struggle with this assignment because they think that haiku is easier than it actually is. I was pleased with the effort that was put forth today, though some of the poems embodied the Eastern philosophy and history better than others.

Analyzing the Complex in the Simple: A Study of Haiku

Lesson 3 of 8

Objective: SWBAT show their ability to write for a range of purposes and audiences by participating in a mini-writing workshop on writing haiku.

Big Idea: Eastern philosophy is often very foreign to our students--helping them to see the dichotomy of simplicity and complexity in Japanese language and thought will help them to connect to this culture.
