In these days of distance learning, many students report feeling a sense of isolation. Poetry can be a nourishing and engaging vehicle for self-expression and a powerful means of connection–even across the computer screen.
Our Poetry Studio Enrichment Sessions playfully draw out each student's unique creative potential, one-on-one or in small groups.
Deb Studebaker is not only a writer and a writing teacher; she's a movement educator who understands that writing is a whole-body process!
Her holistic approach to teaching poetry includes brain-balancing movement to ignite the imagination as it enhances social/emotional and cognitive capabilities.
Classes include reading poems, discussing them, brainstorming new works, and enjoying the craft of writing. Deb teaches age-appropriate literary forms and devices, the importance of rethinking and revision, plus performance and presentation techniques.
As Deb gets to know her students, she tailors her lessons to their interests.
Private and semi-private sessions can be customized for kindergarten - 12th graders on a schedule that's convenient for you. Individual one-hour sessions start at $125, with special pricing available for monthly pre-paid packages.
