Boosting literacy and building community through student voice

What is

Flocabx is a student-centered writing initiative for school districts that transforms classroom culture and engages the entire community. Flocabx has 3 pillars:

Professional development for teachers.

PD on engaging writing practices, culturally responsive pedagogy and youth culture, led by Flocabulary staff and external facilitators.

A writing contest with a custom prompt, designed by you and Flocabulary.

The writing prompt is designed to drive towards your academic goals. During the contest, everyone in the district will receive full access to Flocabulary.com and the Flocabulary mobile app. Written work is done using Lyric Lab, Flocabulary’s rhyme-writing tool.

A culminating student performance.

The entire community, including families, local business leaders, local media, and elected officials, come together to see students perform live and celebrate their work. Performances also include guest appearances from Flocabulary artists.
