Online Videos for Photo-haiku Contests in Matsuyama and Kagoshima!

An Online Tool for Educators Teaching Haiku

As an online tool for educators teaching haiku, we recommend this video created by David McMurray (professor at International University of Japan) and his seminar students. 
The video teaches students how to write haiku and photo-haiku and how to participate in haiku contests. 
The video demonstrates how seminar students created an educational video. This English lecture has the power to entertain you, too.
 The video is aimed at middle and high school students, but is equally suitable for grades 5 and up. 
As an added bonus, students learn how to participate in photo-haiku contests in Matsuyama and Kagoshima. 
You can find many tips for writing photo haiku in the video. This includes how to get the reader to say "aha" and how to imbue the poem with elegance. 
Ten minute videos are the perfect length for teachers to watch and share with their class.

McMurray’s seminar students actively participate in reading and analyzing haiku. You will love watching these videos. This is a great project!

俳句を教える教育者にとって素晴らしいツールとして、David McMurray(鹿児島国際大学教授)と彼のゼミの学生によって作成されたこれらのビデオをお勧めします。
  ビデオは中学生と高校生を対象としていますが、小学校5年生以上にも適しています。 追加のボーナスとして、学生は俳句コンテストに参加することができます。
後者のビデオでは、俳句を書くためのさらなるヒントを見つけることができます。 読者に「あは」と言わせる方法や、詩に優雅さを吹き込む方法などが含まれます。 動画は、教師が視聴してクラスで共有するのに最適な長さです。
  また、様々なマクマレイ教授のゼミの学生は俳句の作成に参加しました。私はビデオを見るのが好きで、生徒たちが作ったビデオに感謝しています。 これは素晴らしいプロジェクトです!
