Swimming with Poets: Lessening Student Anxiety and Fear of Poetry in English 1020

by Dr. Lena Andersson

Dr. Anderrson writes, "While my students do not find short stories inaccessible, they approach poetry as cryptic texts that might as well be written in Greek or Cyrillic. By the time we get to drama, the poor dears are relieved, but exhausted. Since poetry is their biggest source of discomfort, my portfolio will focus on that."

Lena's portfolio includes her focus statement, teaching philosophy, and various course materials and reflections on her teaching and the course.
