Talk to the Past

Every week, our Week in Rap Shout-Out Contest gives students an opportunity to win a shout out for their school in the next Week in Rap. For this week’s contest, we asked you to imagine that you could spend one hour with someone who’s passed away. Who would you choose? Why? What would you talk about during your hour?

Our winner this week is Lakeview Middle School in Lakeview, NJ. The seventh and eighth grade ELA LLD students interviewed scientist Dian Fossey. Check out their video entry:

Thank you to everyone who entered this week, as well as to all who entered in 2014! The Week In Rap Shout-Out Contest will be taking a break for the holiday season, but you can check back in the new year for more opportunities to win a shout out for your school. In the meantime, enter our Year in Rap contest with the New York Times Learning Network!
