We are very excited to be part of this professional development event on Friday.
Roots Rhymes Collective presents Know the Ledge: Hip Hop Education, Pedagogy, and Professional Development.
“Inspired by the title of the Rakim recording ‘Know The Ledge’ – featured on the Juice soundtrack – this professional development day explores the role of Hip Hop education, pedagogy and curriculum building at the elementary, high school, and post-secondary (college and university) levels of education.
The morning and afternoon sessions will feature some of the foremost thought leaders in the arena of Hip Hop education, teaching and curriculum development in formats that include panel discussions and facilitated workshops. The day’s conversations, which are intended for both teachers and teacher candidates alike, will detail the value and practical application of Hip Hop pedagogy and strategy in the classroom.
Guests include: Dalton Higgins, Shaheen Ariefdien, Dr. Francesca D’Amico-Cuthbert, Marcus Singleton, Dr. Rhonda C. George, and Hip Hop Headucatorz.
As RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan once expressed, ‘knowledge is to know the ledge so we don’t fall off the edge.’ “
We hope to see you there!
