#Haiku Happenings #4: Ellen Grace Olinger shares THF’s education resources!
For a few years, I served as a volunteer in education at The Haiku Foundation.
In 2013, their Education Resources feature was first published. Jim Kacian and I wrote the first set of lessons for the elementary grades. Montage: The Book, edited by Allan Burns, was a primary textbook. Dave Russo and Billie Wilson also helped with this work. Billie was the editor of the Haiku Registry, and I read there a lot, as I wrote lessons.
Brad Bennett and Jeannie Martin hosted the How We Haiku – Teaching Stories series. The 19 stories are also listed on the Education Resources page, and you can link to the original posts at The Haiku Foundation.
Many poets, teachers, and scholars contribute their work.
