Young Poets Society

Our project motto: ‘A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom" (Robert Frost ). Poetry is a necessary medium for people to communicate, to promote their creativity, to explore themselves and express their feelings and emotions. Therefore, poetry can motivate students and present a wide range of learning opportunities. Through the “Young Poets Society” project, students from Greece, Poland and Romania will exchange poems of great poets of their countries, explore their characteristics and finally, they will cooperate to write their own poems using various structures and styles (haiku, cinquain, quatrain, sensory-emotion poems, couplets, diamonte poems, limericks, shape poems, tanka, ballad, and free verse poems). All these poems will be illustrated with the students own drawings and, finally, they will be included in an e-book under the title “Young Poets Society: Collection of Poems”. Students will also use their poems creatively to make their own video or audio files, dramatize them or make them into songs. All this material will be hosted in a blog specially designed for this project.

My experience in the project!

Written Spanouli Eleni

I have never taken part in an eTwinning project before and I think that it was one of the most rewarding experiences at school! Writing poetry seemed difficult at the beginning but after a while we were all writing poems easily and we were always looking forward to the next activities.nbsp; I loved the poems that our partners from Romania wrote.nbsp; They are all so talented and they seem to be able to use the English language very well! We were all impressed by their poems!nbsp; I hope they...
