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.

How do subscriptions differ from digital products?
Subscriptions differ from their digital counterparts in how you pay for them. Rather than pay the entire product price on the day of purchase, you pay the recurring monthly charge as advertised. Digital describes content, and subscription describes the payment method.
How do subscription licenses work?
Subscriptions are licensed to a single family. In other words, use your Homeschool Mega Bundle subscription for all of the children in your household! All 130+ lessons are available to your family members at a single monthly price.
If you are leading a coop or tutorial and plan to use one of our subscription courses, we ask that all participating families purchase a subscription to the course used in the tutorial. If the tutorial is using American History, then participating families may either purchase the single American History subscription or the Homeschool Mega Bundle which contains American History and 6 other courses.
Are subscriptions enabled for all of your products?
Not yet, but we plan to make regular increases in our catalog. New products will be developed with a subscription model in mind. The Homeschool Mega Bundle provides access to most of our subscription catalog in one product.
Why can’t I add items to my shopping cart?
Subscription items must be purchased individually. If you have existing items in your shopping cart, adding a subscription product will yield the following error message:
Subscription items must be purchased individually with no other items in the cart. Please clear your cart to add this item.
To continue, place your subscription orders non-subscription orders separately.
If I have already purchased a curricular item, do I need to purchase it again as a subscription?
No. We’re not providing any disruption to our valued customers. We’re simply providing an affordable way to integrate some of our other products into your homeschool.
You may, however, find value in purchasing a subscription in addition to your physical or downloadable product. Subscription products are as mobile as your Internet-ready devices. Going on a trip as part of your American History study? Take your phone or tablet and leave the DVDs at home!
What are the system requirements for using a subscription?
You will need Internet access and a device with a modern Web browser. Ad blocking software can cause problems when viewing the videos. Please add http://www.compassclassroom.com/ to your whitelist to enjoy playback.
Will my subscription price change if the store’s advertised price increases?
