WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE COURSE?
JLE Academy engages students in discussion-based learning, including debate, public speaking, essay writing, and current events reflections.
This is a discussion-based course that examines the history and complexity of Hip-Hop culture, its diversity and role in social justice efforts around the world.
Elements of Hip-Hop culture (rap, DJ, graffiti, & breakin) and media (music, television, and film) will be used as tools to critique what we learn and communicate.
We will examine the influence of Hip-Hop culture on our critical consciousness for social change and use our individual and collective creativity to explore solutions for a more equitable society.
