The Craft of Poetry: A Directed-Study Seminar Course Planned by Knowles' Andragogical Principles.
Kelso, Genell
This paper describes a directed-study seminar course in the craft of poetry using Malcolm Knowles' andragogical principles of teaching (related to the educational process of adults as contrasted with pedagogy, the educational process of children). The background and significance of the course are discussed and procedures for administering it, along with some of its limitations and assumptions, are explained. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implications of such a course for colleges, and recommendations for teaching a poetry course to adults as a directed-study seminar. The appendixes contain the complete course syllabus, a worksheet for analyzing a poem, and a form for evaluating the course. (TJ)
