Tune in to Learning: How To Write A Poem

Learn how to construct a well-written poem through this activity. Because poetry writing is meant to invoke the emotions and senses of its audience, begin the lesson by matching specific words to their correct senses. You are then prompted to consider other words and phrases that appeal to particular senses. The next module includes sensory descriptions in order for you to recognize how language is constructed to impact one of the five senses. The remaining portion of the lesson encourages you to play with words and phrases of your own that, in turn, lead to a meaningful and well-written poem.
