Power of Words: Poetry Lesson

National Poetry Month is in April and this poetry lesson from educator Sherry Hatton is a perfect way to celebrate. In this video workshop preview, she’ll walk you through the 8 steps of using stretch words to rhythmically create a piece of class poetry centered around a theme. Words are powerful and this lesson teaches how to select, curate, and use them with purpose.

This workshop is part of our Power of Words Pack in the Accelerator Professional Membership.
