I graded quizes for a collegue a few days ago.  The average grade was 50%.

Now, he’s a good teacher, I know the material was there for them, they chose not to learn it.

As I was grading. the students were doing a lab, it was Chemistry class.

I was listening to a couple of girls ‘rapping’ a song in the back of the lab. 

I didn’t get all the words, and I’ll give the ‘ladies’ credit, they did bleep out a few.  But they knew every word.

Did I mention the average quiz grade was 50.

I  had an epiphany.

I remember a friend (a physics teacher) saying “If I could sing history, I could learn it.”

I mean after all, how’d you learn your ABCs?

You sang it.

And “In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue” is actually the first line from a song.

So, let’s rap our way through history, and chemistry, and English.

Apparently, this is what we’ve become!
