Through this experiential learning, the participants were able to comprehend and appreciate the creative genius of the British poets particularly those belonging to the Romantic Age.
More than 20 students participated in the activity. Students dressed up like British poets, thereon, depicting the traditions and customs of that age which enhanced their knowledge. In all, seven teams prepared their exhibits related to the poets and their age. Each team consisted of four students and they emulated British Poets and recited their famous poems like, ‘Ode to Nightingale’, ‘Kubla Khan’, ‘One Day I wrote her name’, ‘Sun Rising’, ‘Ode to West Wind’, ‘Ode to Intimation of Immortality’, and ‘The Lamb’.
