Students will create their own purpose rap.
Each student will be asked to bring in a rap record.
First we will discuss the different types of raps which exist (i.e. boast raps, insult raps, news raps, message raps, nonsense raps, and party raps.) Students will then be asked to provide examples of these types of raps from rappers that they know. Then we will play several rap records that have been brought in by the students. We will then classify these rap records into one of the categories we have discussed. Afterwhich students will be asked to create a rap with a purpose of their choosing.
Students will take home their raps and create a graffiti drawing to go along with their rap.
