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.


Getting to know each other!

During October both teachers and students had a lot of things to do and a lot of tasks to accomplish, but everything was ready on time:)

Teacher Partners created a detailed time schedule for the whole project and they have also designed the blog that hosts the "Young Poets Society" project. 

Here is a link to our blog:

Young Poets Society .

Students had a lot of tasks to accomplish, as well.  First of all, they prepared a presentation of their countries and the places where they live and they wrote letters to their partners to introduce themselves.  They also made their first attempt to write poetry.  They all wrote their first poems entitled "I am " Poem with great success and enthusiasm!  Finally, they presented to their partners great poets of their countries.  They wrote a short biography for each one of the poets and they also exchanged translated versions of some of the most representative Greek and Polish poems.

What is more, they designed a " What do you know about my Country Quiz" which they gave to their partners and they are waiting for them to search for the answers to their questions:)

All this material is published in our Twinspace, as well as in our blog! You can visit it and travel with us not only to our countries but also to the world of poetry:)
