The World of Haiku. [Lesson Plan].
National Endowment for the Humanities (NFAH), Washington, DC.
In this lesson plan, students explore the traditions and conventions of haiku, comparing this classic form of Japanese poetry to a related genre of Japanese visual art. Students also compose haiku of their own. The lesson's learning objectives are: (1) to learn about the history and poetic conventions of Japanese haiku; (2) to read and interpret classic examples of haiku; (3) to compare the world of haiku with the world portrayed in Japanese woodblock prints; and (4) to practice writing haiku in English. Nine specific activities are described in detail, and ideas to extend the lesson conclude the lesson plan. (SR)
