Presentation Description

Poetry provides us with a different way of seeing the world, a way of conceptualizing the complexities and chaos of our environments. Poets use creative, empathetic thinking to take unwieldy concepts and make them manageable, understandable, even beautiful. In this workshop, students will be introduced to narrative poetry, study how poets conceptualize problems, then create a narrative poem of their own. This workshop will allow future leaders to practice empathetic thinking, creative problem solving, and help them better understand themselves, each other, and the world.

Presentation Learning Objectives

Students will discuss narrative poetry and compose their own poems in order to practice empathetic thinking, creative problem solving, and emotional intelligence.
