Hip-Hop Education Resources
Hall, Marcella Runell
Equity & Excellence in Education, v42 n1 p86-94 Jan 2009
Hip-hop music and culture are often cited as being public pedagogy, meaning the music itself has intrinsic educational value. Non-profit organizations and individual educators have graciously taken the lead in utilizing hip-hop to educate. As the academy continues to debate its effectiveness, teachers and community organizers are moving forward. This article presents a brief list of educator resources, including lesson plans, curriculum guides, notable organizations, articles, books, and Web sites. It is meant to be a starting point for various resources available on how to learn more about hip-hop and education. Many of these resources have a social justice lens or systems analysis in their use of and relationship to hip-hop. Others, while useful and innovative, do not address issues of systemic or institutional oppression, but can still be engaging tools for students and educators. (Contains 68 resources and 8 online resources.)
