Many people – both activity leaders and their participants – shy away from poetry because they see it as too serious or too hard to understand. But they are missing out on a wide range of fun and fascinating program ideas if they skip it. This course will teach you how to use poetry as a subject for:
- Reminiscence and discussions
- Word games
- Trivia questions
- Writing exercises
It will also teach you to adapt poetry exercises for people with dementia. Most of all, it will teach you to have fun with poetry.
This course has been pre-approved by the NCCAP.
