Hip Hop in the Heartland Summer Institute runs July 9-12

June 13, 2018

Each summer, UW-Madison teams up with Urban Word NYC to offer educators and community leaders a four-day program to learn the best practices in hip hop and spoken word pedagogy.

The Institute brings together the leading educators, professors, emcees and activists utilizing the media of spoken word, hip hop and urban arts as relevant, dynamic and necessary educational tools to engage students across multi-disciplinary curricula.

Hip Hop in the HeartlandHip Hop in the Heartland draws from educational theories such as socio-cultural theory, culturally relevant pedagogy, critical race theory, and hip hop and social justice pedagogies, to help educators and community leaders connect hip hop as both an art form and an instructional tool to improve the academic success of students who remain marginalized in our schools.

Participants learn proven, hands-on techniques to develop lesson plans and strengthen their course study, as well as create a platform from which they will understand the scope of hip hop history, culture and politics. Evening programming consists of an all-star cast who will synthesize the day trainings with effective strategies and cutting-edge multicultural educational approaches.

The institute, which is co-sponsored in part by the School of Education's office of Education Outreach and Partnerships, will take place from July 9-12 in the Education Building on the UW-Madison campus. Visit the Hip Hop in the Heartland website to register or for information about schedule, lodging, past presenters and more.
