Description

Matt Whitling teaches your child to analyze not only poetry, but words and language in general. Just as an English course would teach a student the different parts of speech, this series teaches a student the building blocks of poetry, thereby enabling students to engage in the language of poetry, literature, and non-literal language.
The Grammar of Poetry is an ideal introductory  course for students and teachers discovering the art of poetry.  As a “grammar,” it teaches the fundamentals of poetry from scansion and rhyme to more advanced concepts like spatial poetry and synecdoche.
Using the classical methodology of imitation (advocated by educators like Quintilian and Benjamin Franklin), this series:

  • Makes students become active participants as they learn the craft of writing poems
  • Offers practical tips and helps, including how to use a rhyming dictionary
  • Shows how great writers use figures of speech effectively, and even when to break the rules of poetry

The Grammar of Poetry’s goal is to teach students how to  interact not just with poems, but with language in any situation.
Developed and used at Logos School with great success, the thirty lessons in The Grammar of Poetry contain:

  • Ten powerful tropes
  • Student activities for every chapter, including riddles to solve
  • A glossary of terms
  • A list of over 150 quality poems
  • Real-life examples from Shakespeare

Designed for a semester at the 6-9th grade level, The Grammar of Poetry is perfectly appropriate for anyone with basic writing skills and the desire to learn poetry. Matt Whitling is the principal of Logos School (one of the first classical Christian schools), and the author of the best-selling Grammar of Poetry textbook. He and his wife Tora live in Moscow, Idaho and have seven children.
