The expedition will include a 45-minute interactive tour of the UA Poetry Center and a 45-minute creative writing workshop. The 6th grade will be exploring insides and outsides, entrances and exits. How does one enter a poem? How does one enter a building? Students will explore these questions through the books in the Poetry Center’s special collection, including a rare book object, “Inside Chance” by Alberto Ríos, as well as the building that houses the collection, to investigate and create their own ideas about the poems and stories they read and write. Highly interactive, this trip employs chance methods of writing and a nonlinear framework to spark curiosity, conversation, and creativity.
