Poetry Encourages Self-Expression

Poetry is a way for students to explore topics they might not otherwise talk about. It’s also a powerful tool for social justice.

  • Write about something you hate without naming the thing you hate or using the word “hate.”
  • Write about an experience of violence you committed, witnessed or experienced.
  • Think about the ways dating, arguing with a parent or friend, or deciding where to hang out can seem like games. Write about the games people play.
