Tell Your Story: Blackout Poetry | Ages 9-12 [VIRTUAL]
Thursday, October 15 at 4 p.m.–4:45 p.m.Free
Blackout poetry is made by blacking out parts of an existing text, so that only some words remain visible. The visible words create a poem. In this class you’ll use Google Docs to create your own poetry.
A Google account is required.
Kids are expected to spend about 20 minutes learning before the program. You can find instructions and activities in this handout: Blackout Poetry – Handout
What you’ll need: A computer with microphone (or headphones) and webcam for Zoom. Parents and caregivers can find information on creating a Zoom account here https://zoom.us/signup.
We will use the “waiting room” feature on Zoom to let participants into the program one by one to keep things safe.
An email address is required for registration. We will email you the Zoom link and more instructions 24 hours in advance of the program.
