PBS x Get Lit

September 2, 2021

Get Lit Poets Jovana, JayLoni, Jason, Vanessa, and Salome share their talent and stories.

"Arts education can truly be a transformative journey. Get Lit, an education non-profit dedicated to increasing teen literacy through the power of spoken word, is proud to collaborate with PBS SoCal | KCET in order to inspire creative expression, provide culturally relevant narratives, and grow social-emotional intelligence. Through the unique stories of five Get Lit poets, we not only offer their sheer talent of performance and storytelling, but activities, prompts, and discussion questions to apply to learning both inside and outside of the classroom in these Common Core-aligned mini-lessons."
