Video: How to Haiku - Beyond 5 7 5
Paul Conneally, haiku poet, introduces the key elements of haiku in this video, illuminating some of the common pitfalls and misunderstandings of what haiku is about.
This film was produced through workshops with two schools in the Cardiff area led by Paul and facilitated by the Japan Society. The project was also supported by the St. Fagans National Museum of History.
The Beyond 5-7-5 booklet, produced by Haiku Poet Paul Conneally, contains background information on haiku and other forms of Japanese poetry as well as ideas, guides and worksheets for educators who would like to introduce haiku to their students. The booklet can be used to plan a standalone haiku lesson or workshop for students of any age, or as a reference for those following the KS3 scheme of work.
