1. Who should enroll in this course?

Anyone who has the desire to teach poetry in the classroom but isn't quite sure where to start. This course will not only have you quickly and easily understanding poetry, it will give you action steps you can take to teach it in your homeschool or other classroom. There's even a schedule you can follow for 12-week course for your students.

2. What qualifies you to teach this course?

I am educated as both a children's librarian and an early childhood/early elementary educator and worked in both fields for several years. The majority of my training is in choosing books for all ages from the very youngest readers through high school, as well as making reading interesting and fun with activities and comprehension lessons. I am also a published poet and a long-time lover of all things poetry. I have been a homeschooling mama for 7 years and have implemented these very steps in teaching poetry to my own boys.

3. What level of poetry is covered by the course?

This is an introductory course to poetry. It covers the mechanics that will help your students begin to understand and enjoy poetry as well as games, activities, and other advice for making poetry enjoyable. It can be used to teach any age level the basics of poetry.

4. There's plenty of free advice about poetry on the internet. Why should I purchase this course?

Advice and action steps are very different. My blog, Lit Mama, offers advice and suggestions about poetry, but nowhere else can you get such a gentle introduction to poetry plus an entire schedule and all the worksheets for teaching a whole poetry course to kids.

5. How do I enroll?

Just click on the Buy button at the top of the course. If you have a coupon code, make sure you enter it at checkout.

6. What happens after my purchase?

You will be immediately taken to the course and will be able to view all of the videos and print all the pdfs at your own pace. There is no time limit, so you can leave and come back whenever and as often as you want.

7. How long can I access the course?

You bought it, you own it. You will have access to the course forever. So if you buy now and life happens and you don't have time to take it right away, you're free to come back when the time is right. If you only have time to do one lesson a week, take your time. Do it your way. We're in this together forever.

8. What format is the course?

The lessons are presented in video format and all printables are in pdf format so you can save them or print them over and over for use throughout your children's school career.

9. What if I feel like I need more help?

Good news! You can join the Facebook group Teach Poetry to Kids where you can reach me almost any time and meet like-minded parents who have advice and ideas of their own. Or you can email me personally--I promise I'll answer.

10. Do you have an affiliate program?

I do! If you're interested in promoting the course to earn a little money for yourself, join the Lit Mama Launch Team and get started today!

11. Will this course make my kids love Poetry?

Only you can encourage the love of poetry in your students by setting an example, and sometimes they still won't love it. But by the end, you and your students will at least be able to understand poetry. The steps in this course will show you how to get started doing that very thing.

12. What if I have a different question?

I'm here for you. If your questions haven't yet been answered, simply email me at ktbrison@litmamahomeschool.com and ask me anything. I promise I'll answer.

13. Do you have a refund policy?

I do, but it's pretty strict. You have to complete the whole course and provide me with proof that you utilized the suggestions and printables therein as well as a detailed description of why it didn't work for you. If you have more questions once you've taken the course, and you don't take advantage of contacting me or joining the Facebook group and getting answers there, you probably won't get a refund. My goal here is to make sure you get poetry so you can teach your kids to get poetry. If you don't put in 100% effort, a refund will not be provided.
