Hip-Hop related trivia as a tool for teaching geography? Absolutely.
Daniel D. Zarazua – a teacher at Oakland Unity High School – created this incredible excercise, which quizzes students on their geography skills by connecting Hip-Hop artists, groups, and history to places and cultures from around the globe. With 31 questions, an answer key, and suggested lesson plan, this is the best Hip-Hop Geography exercise I’ve seen yet.
Mr. Zarazua’s site has a wealth of advanced ideas for integrating Hip-Hop into your classroom and more.
