We are well aware that not every teacher or student is a hip-hop fan and that many of you may not feel comfortable introducing hip-hop into your classroom. Regardless of how you feel about hip-hop, it is important to respect the fact that many of your students love it. Flocabulary's products demonstrate the highly effective educational applications of our classroom-appropriate brand of hip-hop. In addition, bringing this art form into your classroom is an excellent opportunity to have your students teach one another and you.
Be honest with your class about trying something that you don't necessarily know a whole lot about. Students who know a lot about hip-hop will share their knowledge and feel empowered by that experience. The more empowered they feel with their knowledge, the more they will learn what you want them to learn.
