Lessons are sequential; a step by step technique is employed for student understanding of terms related to poetry and paintings. In addition, creative exercises are included. It is expected that students will overcome biases with regard to poetry through the above method. In addition, student understanding of terms should be such that, as a final step, the student becomes poet/artist. That is, students could use poetic/artistic devices for their own forms of expression, visual and written. These art forms would be the result of their intellectual and emotional involvement with ideas and discoveries associated with paintings and poetry.
