Awesome tool for engaging students with a hip-hop/rap format.  I especially like the “This Week in Rap” feature.  A great way to discuss and learn about current events.

This is designed for urban educators as a place to share best practices and resources to increase student achievement. It could provide a bridge for all educators K-16 to increase outcomes and dialogue to serve these learning populations. This population can be the most challenging but rewarding as well. Additionally, it can serve to merge theory with practical application.
