Poem structure, stanzas, meter, rhythm, drafting and revision
Choose the right level
This course is recommended for students entering Grade 6 or 7. We recommend that students enroll in Language
Arts courses at grade level.
Aspiring poets and programmers unite! In this fun, expansive course, students learn to approach poetry as engineers, analyzing the "code" that underpins great poetry and then applying their new skills to tinker with their very own poetry bots. Students build their comprehension and close-reading skills by engaging with a selection of famous poems, from classical sonnets to modern spoken word. Along the way, they prepare to put their poetic acumen to the test in a lively derby.
Students who took our Poetry and Analysis camp prior to summer 2023 will see repeated material in this class. Reach out to us at email@example.com for help on finding the right camp!
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom. With a small class size, teachers can give individualized attention to each student, providing real-time verbal and written feedback and supporting students' growth as writers.
Our Language Arts summer courses do not include homework. Students receive frequent feedback on their writing and present their work throughout the course.
Drop and refund policies
If you drop a summer course before the start of your first class session, we'll issue a full refund for the
course tuition. No refunds will be issued for withdrawing from a summer course after the start of your first class
session. We do not accept Language Arts book returns, since they are purchased from a third party.
Our summer course offerings meet five days a week, Monday through Friday. We offer this course in two timing
formats. Both cover the same course material.
The two-week course meets for 3 hours each day.
The four-week course meets for 1.5 hours each day.
