Product Description
Teaching the art of haiku can be an excellent creative writing activity as well as a logical introduction to poetry overall. Studying and writing these brief, concentrated poems nurture students' ability to choose words carefully, edit themselves, and use language efficiently. Additionally, such poems stimulate imagination while deepening appreciation for the beauty of simplicity and the details of everyday life.

This PowerPoint can be used as an introduction to the haiku. It includes:

-Background of the form and structure of haiku
-Traditional Japanese masters and a few of their works
-Modern-day haiku written by contemporary authors
-Student example haiku
-"Twaiku" (haiku on Twitter) explanation and example
-Brainstorming activities, including group work, inspirational photos and nature walks
-Writing activities, both haiku and twaiku, that will allow students to create their own tiny masterpieces.

The presentation is provided as both a fully editable PowerPoint as well as a PDF.
