Breakbeat Pedagogy : Hip Hop and Spoken Word Beyond the Classroom Walls Paperback / softback

Part of the Counterpoints series

Description

Breakbeat Pedagogy provides a groundbreaking framework for the inclusion of hip-hop culture in schools.

Looking beyond the previous model of hip-hop-based education, Brian Mooney argues for school-wide hip-hop events, such as poetry slams, as the ideal site for students to engage in the elements of hip-hop culture.

Working from the perspective of a classroom teacher, the author reflects on the story of Word Up!, a hip-hop and spoken word poetry event that began with students in a New Jersey high school.

He makes the case for a pedagogy with the potential to transform urban schools and the way we think about them.

This is essential reading for any teacher committed to social justice and culturally relevant education.
