ENG4CU3L1: Hip Hop Is

January 22, 2015:

Today students considered the history and influence of hip hop. Students were introduced to the four elements of hip hop, as well as the key concept behind them all (knowledge).

Students began working on their Hip Hop Is... poems. Students were given a brainstorming sheet and an example poem and we will continue this writing project in future classes.
