Welcome to Socio-poetix

WHAT EXACTLY IS ``SOCIO-POETICS`` ANYWAYS?

Socio-Poetix is the fusion of Spoken Word Poetry with various academic issues in the realm of Sociology for the purpose of better educating and impacting students.

How can Spoken Word be used as an academic tool?

Every professor knows that delivering a compelling lecture has little to do with the actual content and a lot more on how he manages to present the material in a manner that connects the content to students on a level they can relate to and interact with. This is exactly what Spoken Word was designed to do.

Do Spoken Word Artists discuss Sociology Topics in their pieces?

Yes!! All the time! In fact, it’s hard to find a Spoken Word piece that doesn’t pertain to a Sociology topic. Socio-Poetix has collected hundreds of Spoken Word pieces that draw on dozens of Sociology topics which we have referenced, analyzed, and listed follow-up questions for the purpose of initiating classroom discussion.
