When a person first steps into a classroom, we have our opportunity to engage them. But we also have to keep them engaged. We also have to keep pace with mental health needs (e.g., stress and trauma) that seep into the classroom. For education to truly thrive, we must take advantage of culture, technology, multiple intelligences and most important our ability to connect with youth. Our model recognizes this, and the uniquely powerful and expanding opportunities of Hip-Hop culture in classrooms. We also provide a straightforward language and structure for using Hip-Hop in classrooms to help you begin. We describe, show you and then provide the basic resources to get started.
