  1. This looks really Fun!!
    I will be a Senior in High school
    (Homeschool) this year, I am really wanting to take a Poetry course for my English, this however would not be for a full credit and probably not even half, I not sure. Anyway can you recommend some other courses which would be really good?

    • This title introduces works by Nash, Bradstreet, Wheatley, Longfellow, Dickinson, Janette…ikz, Cullen, Brooks, Hughes, Whitman, Angelou, and several Native American poems including poetry by Chief Dan George.

    • Good question, Lynn. It really depends on the amount of experience a young person has with poetry and his/her ability level. Many high schoolers these days have had little experience with poetry, so this is a great introduction. For a middle schooler who is able and interested, it is a great fit. The course is an introductory-style course.

      • How might I add to or supplement this study for our 12 week co-op?
        I am really considering this for middle and Jr. high students. Any suggestions for how much credit a 9th grade student might receive?

        • Hi Lynn,
          I’d love to help you decide how to add or supplement this study guide for a 12 week co-op. I’d need a little more information about your goals for the middle and high schoolers for this class. You can comment here or email me at Vicki@7SistersHomeschool.com

          This would be part of the writing component of the Language Arts credit. Here is an explanation of what needs to be included in Language Arts.

          • Thanks! I will email you too, but one of my goals is for students to actually enjoy some type of writing. I think ? poetry could insprire some creativity. Another goal is for students to have a type of portfolio of writings. Does this sound too challenging for 6th graders?
