Join Elizabeth Gillogly and host John Muir Laws on the Nature Journal Educator’s Forum to explore how to use Haiku in your journal and classroom. Haiku is a simple form that fits easily into journaling activities and observational experiences. It is a great addition to other journaling modes stands alone as a core activity. Together we will have an opportunity to write and share our own Haiku and see strategies to share them with students.

    Hi – I am new to Nature Journaling. I just listened to the Haiku presentation and it was very well done. I might suggest a book on this – ‘Writing and Enjoying Haiku A hands-on Guide’ by Jane Reichhold – very helpful in writing Haiku. I would also suggest – ‘Basho: The Complete Haiku Annotated Edition’. Matsuo Basho is the Japanese poet most responsible for the Haiku form. Both books are available on Amazon. For anyone who wants to do a deep dive – ‘On Haiku’ by Sato Hiroaki – a lot of interesting articles on Haiku

    Eye-opening and earth-honoring session!
    Scientific observations combined with the charm and beauty of the powerfully condensed language of haiku. It doesn’t get any better. A slice of Process Science Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Alfred North Whitehead would have been delighted to see in action.

    And I am happy to see that Bob Ross is wearing his sweater.

    Thank you Jack and Elizabeth.
