Tap into WRAP: Writing Rhymes w/ Academic Purpose

Music has proven to be a powerful teaching tool. Hip Hop, specifically, has become a global phenomenon that transcends race, class, gender, language, and more. Flocabulary has mastered the art of creating standards aligned hip hop videos that make rigorous content more relevant for today’s students. This has lead to increased student engagement and achievement. What if teachers and students could do the same? Great news - with instructional resources and Flocabulary’s newest web-based feature, Lyric Lab, every student and adult can become a WRAP star - Writing Rhymes with Academic Purpose. Attendees will learn from Flocabulary’s formula and write their own educational hip hop song.
