Hip-hop has grown into a global phenomenon with a diverse community of artists, scholars and enthusiasts. Though it has evolved across decades, it has maintained roots in self-expression, creativity and social justice. Moreover, hip-hop is integral to youth culture — so it can serve as a powerful teaching tool for students. Join us to explore how the five pillars of hip-hop (MCing, DJing, break dance, graffiti and knowledge) can be leveraged as a pedagogical strategy to inspire students to think deeply about misinformation and how it impacts their lives.

Reserve your spot today for this free edWebinar featuring a panel of hip-hop education and journalism experts who will discuss the impact of misinformation on hip-hop journalism and share tips for teaching students to avoid the pitfalls of misinformation.

Speakers will include:

  • Chris Payne, senior audio production manager, Flocabulary and Nearpod
  • Ime Ekpo, cultural journalist

In addition, you’ll also hear about free NLP resources, including customizable interdisciplinary classroom lessons, that are available to support you and your students as you explore this rich subject.

This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
