Rhymes to Re-Education Critical Hip Hop Curriculum Launch! #HipHopEd
I have had the pleasure to work with such a great team of Toronto Hip Hop Artists (all the elements) and Educators to put together this resource. Nearly a year in the making, this resource brought together the community of people who want to see youth succeed in school and life! It is about teaching through critical pedagogy and hip hop pedagogy to get youth to examine issues and make change in their communities. School is not helping everyone to succeed, this resource is a counter to traditional teaching styles, pedagogy and curriculum which will engage students in your class or community. The lessons range from Grade 2 – 12 and have something for everyone with Ontario Curriculum links. This resource is not just for school but a community resource that can be used after school and summer programs. The website and YouTube channel also have a ton of information and downloads to accompany the book. Very proud of the entire team and how far we have come!
I hope to see you at the launch this Tuesday!
