Information "Lit": Using Rap, Trap, Hip-Hop, and Chill to Deliver Library Instruction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kiki, when you're teaching, do your students stare like zombies? If slides and handouts got you in your feelings, this highly interactive session will introduce you to four adaptable hands-on activities that incorporate America's most popular and recognizable music genres to introduce beginning research concepts such as identifying keywords, defining and refining a topic, and evaluating sources. Worksheets and guidelines will be provided, and desired outcomes and learning goals will be discussed. Tips on creating classroom appropriate playlists, using music as a timing and transitioning tool, and other best practices will also be covered. Previous knowledge of the genres is not required; just a desire to engage your students and be the "dopeist" librarian on campus!

Participants will:
  • Learn how to use Hip Hop, Rap, and related genres as a classroom management, timing, and transition tool.
  • Be able to adapt and execute an activity utilizing Hip-Hop, Rap and related genres for their own library instruction sessions.
  • Gain awareness of the advantages in using hip-hop/rap and related genres during instruction sessions, as well as challenges.
