Reading with A Rapper (RWAR) was created to relate ELA academics with socially conscious lyrics and video content. Through this platform we can relate and uplift our youth socially and academically to skills necessary to thrive in Primary School and Collegiate Level courses.
Creating lifelong readers will ensure and promote academic success through adulthood. Statistics show that students in secondary education struggle to understand the basics of literature, which increases their disinterest in such an important skill. More than 8,000 students quit High school everyday, limiting their financial potential and ability to become strong members of the workforce. Reading with a Rapper is an 8-week program designed to involve students in an interactive learning experience with relatable innovative tools and metrics. This program is geared toward students of all learning levels and social demographics. Students will be given an opportunity to relate real world concepts to literature and writing. This Curriculum will take the place of either creative or practical writing classes on your respected campus.
Millennials revolve around technology! Using Microsoft's Surface Pro Tablets, students under our curriculum will be able to use cutting edge technology when dissecting the content of lyrics, showing cohesive learning abilities, and expressing creative thought for our curriculum exercises.
