WELCOME TO RHYMES WITH REASON
HOW RAP CAN BE A LEARNING TOOL
Rhymes with Reason is designed to take academic vocabulary (SAT, ACT and Common Core) words said by hip-hop artists in pre-existing songs, and creates a culturally engaging curriculum made up of these words.
While the student flips through their vocabulary word set, they have the ability to repeatedly listen to their favorite rappers, utter academic vocabulary. Students are able to memorize vocabulary words and their meaning, just like they are often able to memorize the lyrics to their favorite songs.
Rhymes with Reason innovatively gives students the unique ability to strengthen their vocabulary proficiency while simultaneously listening to their favorite hip-hop artist. Rhymes with Reason allows students a way to bring their experience outside of the classroom, of deeply engaging in their enjoyment of hip-hop music, and following their favorite artists, inside the classroom and into their educational experience. This precisely meets students "where they are."
