Product Description
I put together these activities as an incredibly brief (2 day) broad overview of Classical poetry of East Asia (China, Japan, Korea) in my World Literature class. I just wanted to give my students a quick taste of the richness of these traditions. The lesson is comprised of two parts. Part 1 involves students using some pretty expansive online resources to find and choose some poems to read and analyze. They are asked to analyze their poetic techniques and comment on the cultural values communicated in the poems. Part 2 gives them a chance to try their hand at writing (in English) a few different types of classical poetry from these traditions. Part 2 also explains and gives examples (original language and translations) of 6 different forms to choose from -- Chinese jueju and fu, Japanese haiku and tanka, and Korean sijo and kasa. Personally, I use this activity for my students' blog sites, but it can be easily be used or adapted for a traditional classroom assignment.
