What will it be like

The teaching and learning methods will be a mixture of experiential, guided discovery and chalk and talk. Progress will be assessed through observation of participation.

What else do you need to buy or do

Students will need pen and paper and should bring five of their own haiku, that they are happy to workshop, to the class.

What this course could lead to

Exploring haiku in more depth could lead to students learning about other forms of Japanese and Western literature and to an increased likelihood of publication success.
