GET THE CURRICULUM

Get Lit’s standards-aligned curriculum pairs classic poetry with spoken word response to empower and embolden students’ expression, affect change and strengthen social-emotional skills. Get Lit spreads the power of poetry from classroom to community.

TEACH GET LIT AT YOUR SCHOOL

The only program of our kind in the nation, Get Lit has created a standards-aligned Classic & Response Model where students identify poetry that resonates with them and then write their own original spoken word response.  We inspire students to amplify their voices while exploring poetry from the past and present.

Poetry comes alive in the classroom with the Get Lit Essential curriculum, where students claim poems that speak to them, then write and perform their own spoken word response. This culturally relevant, standards and SEL-aligned curriculum adds enrichment and rigor to any English or drama class, using student voice to increase student engagement and literacy, empowers creative expression, and strengthens social-emotional skills. Plus includes our “Blitz” poetic performance, mentor visits, professional development, entry to the Classic Slam and more! Synchronous or asynchronous options available.
