Lesson 2: Irony and ToneThe biggest mistake you can make as a poet is to believe that a poem's purpose is to show emotion or convey a thought.
Lesson 3: Denotation and ConnotationDenotation and connotation are two terms that are very important in poetry, especially when you're writing it, because they can determine the meaning of your words and help to set the tone of the poem.

This clearly demonstrates much more commitment to teaching the course than self grading T/F and Multiple Choice exams - though these were used as well...I sought assistance from the Instructor so often I was concerned about being a pest.
