  • BEFORE class, read (in closed captions) and watch Staceyann Chin’s “Tsunami Rising.” Be prepared to share what you felt about Chin’s poem. Did you like/dislike it? Why?
  • During class, I’ll lead a brief discussion on voice & style in poetry (and other genres).
  • Be sure to bring the poems you’ve found and be prepared to read and briefly state why you enjoy these poems.


  • Homework: Go to the Announcement page for instructions to begin writing four poems.
