The Haiku Foundation offers Haiku Lessons, for many age and grade levels.

I helped to begin this work, with Jim Kacian, the founder and director, and many others at the foundation.  Dave Russo is their web administrator.  We published the first set of plans in June 2013.

In addition to lesson plans, the Education Resources page features information and links to related content; for example to the new online journal at THF, Juxtapositions.

Brad Bennett and Jeannie Martin are the education co-chairs.

The Haiku Foundation is non-profit.

Thank you,
