CE 275 TL / ENGH 298 TL – Special Topics in Civic Engagement: Poetry in the World: Socially Embedded Teaching Artists
About the Course:
Poetry in the World is a community-based learning course designed to give students a basic understanding of key concepts, structures and pedagogies of civic engagement with a focus on the reading and writing of poetry and short prose. The Socially Embedded Teaching Artist Students (SETA’s) will critically examine ever-changing university-community relationships and will be exposed to different techniques and models of socially-embedded writing projects. A portion of this class will require working directly with students and professional teaching artists in the community and will alternate between an off-campus learning environment and on-campus instruction and reflection. Students will be introduced to the creation and implementation of creative writing lesson plans and will be encouraged to investigate their own civic pathways.
About Community-Based Learning:
Community Based Learning (CBL) classes, also sometimes called Service Learning Classes, foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world. At Drew, CBL classes strengthen community partners that serves the common good. They fulfill the Off-Campus Experience requirement and qualify as one of the Launch program’s immersive experiences.
