Assignment 1 — We haiku and so do you
Due Tuesday, January 16
On-time submission is an enrollment requirement
- On your honor enter your own original, thoughtful haiku about your class expectations or concerns.
- A haiku is a three-line poem with the first line being five syllables, the second line being seven syllables, and the third line being five syllables. A haiku is not expected to rhyme. For example,
Haikus have three lines
Five, seven, five syllables
As their iambics
- A haiku is normally expected to paint an image regarding feelings and experiences. Your haiku must be about about your class expectations or concerns. The poem should be appropriate for other class members to read.
- Your poem must be a haiku to get credit. So check your line and syllable counts.
- Please do not title your poem nor provide your name and id. They are available to us automatically. Note: each submission replaces your previous submission.
- The poem must be submitted using the submit button. Email or written submissions are not acceptable.
- If you are wondering why it must be done by Tuesday – I create a web document of the haikus for discussion on the first day of class. It also ensures that you are able to use the class submission system. Submissions that are not haikus will receive minimal credit.
