Weekly Current Events

I think it’s really important to pay attention to the world around us, and think about and discuss what’s going on.

Most weeks, on Friday, I’d like to have a look at a site called Flocabulary, where they take different topics and turn them into rap songs. They’re pretty great, and I’m sure you’ll hear a bunch of them in my class this year.

Fridays they present “This Week in Rap,” and today I’d like to start looking at those.
