Transcript of Hip Hop Pedagogy

An Introduction to
Hip Hop Pedagogy

Take the first (or next) steps!
Phase 4
Understand the Value of Hip Hop in the Classroom
Know What Hip-Hop Is
Hip-Hop's Stylistic Elements:
B-boying/B-girling (Breakdancing)
Understand what these elements look like in the classroom
= use of language and argument
= manipulation of technology
= use of kinesthetic movement and rhythm
= visual expression
= knowledge!!!
What would these elements look like in your content area?
Start this discussion. There is
content area that can't be taught or enhanced using hip hop. (Go ahead. Try me.)
It either validates or introduces (or both!) culture(s) in your classroom
It invites an opportunity to discuss issues of social justice/awareness
Both positive and negative messages in hip hop can be closely examined
