Rapping Across the Curriculum: Using Student Created Hip-hop to Express Content Understanding
You may have your own opinions about rap and hip-hop, but it’s a fact: "kids-these-days" are listening and loving it. Use that to your advantage in the classroom. Attending participants will be supplied with or made aware of the rubrics, assignment-sheets, incentives, and the apps and resources necessary to host a rap battle in their classroom. Examples of quality student work will be shared. There will also be a brief demonstration of how teacher-created raps can be used as teaching tools. If implemented in a structured, focused manner, student rap battles can be a fun, manageable, creative way to engender enthusiastic student participation and expression of content-mastery.
