Diane Luby Lane participated in a TedX Santa Barbara event about the power of poetry to transform literacy education.
From TedX Santa Barbara:
Is it possible to change the field of education with poetry? Yes!
Diane has been using poetry to transform classrooms in Southern California since 2006. Over 10,000 students graduate from Get Lit's award-winning curriculum each year.
Education is at crisis levels. Recent events in the US have shined a spotlight on racial injustice. However, we also need to recognize and address the injustices that take place every day in our classrooms.
Youth voices and youth stories are at the center of Get Lit’s curriculum in which students claim classic/contemporary poems that resonate with their hopes, dreams, and life experiences.
