Watch the Video! "Stress" by Blake Brandes (Motivational Blog Rap #27)
Two weeks ago, I ran a professional development workshop for K-12 teachers about using hip-hop and culturally relevant pedagogy in the classroom
The attendees had a wealth of knowledge and experience in working with students from different cultural backgrounds, and I learned a great deal from these teachers’ perspectives and “best practices” in reaching their students.
One of the interesting insights was that several schools in the district have a trend that differs from many schools in America. Because many of the students in this district come from families who place a high value on education and professional success, the students feel like they must be perfect.
