Educational Hip Hop in the Classroom

Music is good for you - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It can strengthen the mind, unlock the creative spirit, and, miraculously, even heal the body. The purpose and product of this project was to develop a handbook for teachers to be motivated to and learn how to use Hip Hop in education. The handbook offers four Common Core-referenced mathematics lessons that serve as samples and inspiration for teachers as well as web-based resources that incorporate lessons, raps, and worksheets teachers can use in their own teaching. The resources and lesson included in the handbook are intended to be used in any educational setting at any grade level.
