GET THE CURRICULUM

The only program of its kind in the nation, Get Lit has created a standards-aligned call-and-response model where students identify poetry that resonates with them and write their own original responses.  We inspire students to amplify their voices while exploring poetry from the past and present.

TEACH GET LIT AT YOUR SCHOOL

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.

CURRICULUM COLLECTION

Get Lit Essential
Curriculum

Our original English curriculum introduces the Get Lit classic & response model, connecting students to poems of the past to create their own poems of the future. At Get Lit, “a classic isn’t a classic because it’s old, a classic is a classic because it’s great.”

Ethnic Studies
Curriculum

Our groundbreaking Ethnic Studies curriculum uses the Get Lit model to connect students with the healing practice of poetry, community-building, and finding their voice.  Through the lens of history and poetry, students explore the complexities of how race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, religion, class, and disability all influence our experiences in society.
