An effective teacher recognizes that their students may have different learning styles, which might call for the teacher to differentiate the lesson. A large reason why hip-hop culture is so attractive is that it appeals to the auditory, visual, and the kinesthetic (movement). It is our assertion that educators must do a better job at learning about hip-hop culture, utilize culturally relevant teaching and leadership approaches, and build strong relationships with these students and their communities in order to better serve and educate. In classrooms, this will require us to transform teaching practices. In school administration, we will have to rethink leadership. In working with the community, we will have to reach out and reach hearts. This article explores the ways in which we can achieve these goals.
