Fresh Faces, New Places: Moving beyond Teacher-Researcher Perspectives in Hip-Hop-Based Education Research
Irby, Decoteau J.; Hall, H. Bernard
Urban Education, v46 n2 p216-240 Mar 2011
Grounded in critical and culturally relevant theory, hip-hop-based education (HHBE) research documents the use of hip-hop in educational settings. Despite the richness of the emerging field, overreliance on teacher-researcher perspectives leaves much to be desired. Little is known of the extent and ways HHBE is used by nonresearching K-12 teachers. The field of HHBE would be well served to begin exploring the practices of K-12 teachers in various school settings. To encourage such a move, this article demonstrates that a new set of educators whose identities and teaching contexts are not considered in the field are indeed interested in HHBE.
