Online Poetry Workshops

Online Poetry Workshops

Educators inserting zest into classroom poetry writing time...

As with in person workshops, the purpose of MSAP Online Workshops is to provide students an alternate form of classroom creativity and to provide students with treasurable tangible end products. The same types of end products offered during in-house presentations are available for online sessions. End products consist of Classroom Poetry Booklets, Individual Student Designer Pages, and Poetry Enhanced Crafts. The methods in which online workshops are conducted for each end product are detailed below. This Program is also great for Troops such as Girl Scouts looking to earn Writing Badges and other writing groups looking to add more versatility to their gatherings.

Poetry workshop certificates provided with each Workshop Option.

Method 1 - Class Poetry Booklets- Provides Memory Booklets for all participating students and teachers.

Teachers go over the materials with students and assign required workshop associated poetry-writing homework. Homework poems are emailed to for evaluation. Works are critiqued and emailed back to teachers.

Students rewrite their poems using MSAP critiques to guide them.

Teachers email rewritten work to MSAP for insertion in corresponding Designer Pages. See Poetry Booklet Slide Show here.

Each child's poem is inserted in a separate Designer Page.

Class Poetry Booklets are produced using each student's Designer Page.

Booklets contain a Table of Contents that allows students to easily locate the page their poem is on.

Some materials directly associated with related poetry-writing assignments and two autograph pages are also included in booklets.

Teachers receive a copy of their classes' booklet for free!

Method 2 - Individual Poetry Pages - Provides Individual Student Poetry Pages.

Workshops are conducted the same as for Method 1.

The only difference between Methods 1 and 2 is the end product.

End products for Method 2 consist of Individual Poetry Pages.

This means each student receives only his or her own poem set in a single Designer Page.

Method 3 - Poetry Enhanced Crafts - Provides Poetry Enhanced Crafts with embedded Student Poems.        

Craft Workshops are conducted in the same manner as Designer Page Workshops {Methods 1 and 2}.

The difference between Craft Workshops and Workshop Methods 1 and 2 is the end product. Craft end products are determined by teacher preference. In other words, teachers review sample MSAP crafts and select the one(s) they want their students to assemble with their poems.

MSAP embeds student poems in Designer Pages and mails the pages along with associated craft materials and assembly instructions to teachers.

Teachers utilize MSAP instructions to direct their students through craft assemblage.

Method 4 - Ongoing Poetry Workshops -

The purpose of Ongoing Workshops is to provide students with long-term poetry-writing experiences.

Ongoing Workshops are conducted for a minimum of four weeks.

Teachers are expected to submit {via email} two sets of student poems per week for a total of eight poetry submissions per student.

MSAP evaluates student poems and provides critiques for each.

Following the eighth critique, teachers submit each student's best/favorite poem to MSAP for insertion in Memory Booklets, Individual Designer Pages, or Poetry Enhanced Crafts.

All other workshop end product criteria is the same as for Methods 1, 2, and 3 above - teacher selects desired Method.
