Hip-Hop in the Classroom: Management through Music

Help me give my students these rugs to work in groups and stations. Currently, the tables in our class do not permit the students to work effectively in small groups.

My Students

All of my students are members of The B Sharp Youth Music Program, a free music education program based in the Como Community of Fort Worth. Our school recently became a leadership academy, which "prepares all students for success in college, career, and community leadership".

My students are intelligent, creative, enthusiastic about learning, and enjoy exploring concepts through pop culture, especially Hip-Hop!

It is truly a pleasure to have such an amazing group of students in my classroom this year!

My Project

We chose these particular products because currently, we have to sit on the hard floor when working in groups and stations. Our tables do not permit us to work effectively in groups, as we transition from one activity to another. Our class is filled with bulletin boards, posters, anchor charts, etc. that celebrate music and culture, more specifically, Hip-Hop culture. Throughout the school, my students have been engaged in a variety of music infused lessons and activities. So, we thought it would be awesome to have these rugs to accentuate the decor in our classroom, while also having a purpose.
