Hip-Hop in the Classroom

Posted by ebowen On March - 19 - 2009

I just found this site called Flocabulary.com that uses hip-hop in the lesson plans. It’s a pretty interesting idea. They have 4 subjects; Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science. Language Arts is pretty much what you took called English…they’ve got several song samples on the site: Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and The Pit and the Pendulum and The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe to name a few. When I first saw it I thought it was another one of those terrible attempts at trying to make learning cool with bad hip-hop…this is actually pretty good. Macbeth is my favorite. In History they have world and American history. And then they have a single book for math and science. Like I said, it’s a novel idea that seems to have evolved quite a way from rapping Barney or any of the crap they had when I was a kid. Check it out.
