Yes, definitely. It can help them express and at their age considering all the things they're going through, poetry would be a very effective outlet.

Yeah they should be taught how to write poetry, that's where they get to know if they have the passion, and if they do, they get to be taught the necessary skills to poetry

Can one really be taught? You only learn the basics and terms. Writing comes from the inside.

Yes. Teenagers should be taught to write poetry but not to the extent of forcing them. I believe that becoming poetic is an inate talent which of course can be developed through the years. I think it can be taught as a form of release for teenagers who are having a hard time to connect with people.

Yes, teenages should be taught to write poetry, because it can help them comprehend,
expand and utilize their vocabulary. It's a form of art and expression they could use to communicate
without having to vocalize words when they don't feel like they can.
It sharpens the mind in my beliefs period.

As a teenager, I can say that not all of us are interested in these kind of “things”. However, for the teenagers who are willing to try out new experiences and new chapters in life, sill surely be interested in being taught how to write poetry. Poetry teaches us a variety of lessons, not just in life itself, but in ourselves as well. Problems come and go and most of the time, teenagers use extracurricular activities to forget, prevent sadness or to temporarily feel happiness. It affects us in every way, such as mentally, physically and even spiritually at times. Therefore, I think it’s important that teenagers learn poetry. For what I learned based on my experiences on workshops with other teens, poetry helps us let out our feelings from deep inside. We get to open up, and have a peace in our minds.

I think everyone should learn about poetry it's a form of expression in lyrics and paper sometimes poetry can be a way of sharing how you feel on paper or through physcial expressions why not teach our teengers positive writing

I think teenagers should be taught how to write poetry because it is a good way for them to express themselves.
