Craig YoungMoney Baldwin's insight:

I think that for kids that are really in to music and even if  there ot they will still benefit from this because I dont know of one person that does not like music so maybe if they incorporate different genres that would help like for example schools in texas may use country but school like the one in this article they use hip-hop and rap and it gets the students in this article to better understand science and incorproate it in to there projects

I believe that using rap and hip-hop in education is very effective because in english when learning vocabulary if done right it will sound like an actual rap and at the same time your inproving your vocabulary.

I was never that good at Science so I think that this is a great idea and not only should they have to use hip hop and rap but they should Incorporate all genres of music in to teaching weather it be teaching math, english, social studies, or as show Science.

andrew mulinge's curator insight, December 8, 2013 9:24 PM

This was actually the video that sparked my interest in the hip-hop education topic for the class. I thought it was particularly encouraging to see how they were using "culture as an anchor of instruction." He took the students' interest and capitalized on that by building their confidence before the topic of science was even mentioned. Just mentioning hip-hop sparked their interest and attention because it was something they were familiar with already. Then when one of the students said "I'm not good at science" because it involved too much "smartness," the hip-hop instructor convinced them how hip-hop requires a lot of smartness too. Building the confidence with students allows them to feel more comfortable with the material presented in the class. I thought was excellent how the students not only incorporated photosynthesis into their rap, but how much fun they had doing it. Once in a while students should be given an outlet to creatively express what they are learning in the classroom.

 

Coming from someone who is intimidated by science and math, more lessons like this could have helped me build more confidence in high school. I know I had the aptitude but I did not neccessarily have the interest to apply it all the time. I also love to write poetry in my free time. I did incorporate science and music one time. It wasn't a rap, but in my AP Psych class in high school, I took Alicia Keys' song "Superwoman" and switched it to "Superneuron". I learned how to play the song on piano and I "attemped" to sing my version of the song that addressed things like synaptic gaps and neuron transmitters. It was a fun activity where I was able to apply what we were learning in class into music. I had a better understanding of the material and I had fun doing it too. Those students did as well.

Craig YoungMoney Baldwin's insight:

If you read the artical it talks about use of hip hop and rap in urban schools but i believe that incorporating music in to education will have a positive effect and students wil learn a lot more and get better graded they can even use it as sa form of extracredit in highschool I wrote a rap about science and english class and reciecved extra credit for doing so. I believe that there are only positive effects to using rap and hip-hop in education.

I didnt take time to listen to all 12 minutes of this video but I believe that if schools start to incorporate hip-hop and rap into learning that students in highschool would understant what there learning in order for me to remember thing in highschool I would do just that I believe this will have a very positive effect on students
