When many educators think of Hip-Hop music, they are likely to call it a distraction to learning as opposed to a conduit for it.  Is it possible to use one of the fastest growing popular music genres to engage students? Can it make learning more engaging in classroom?

Marygrove College's Teacher Talk welcomes CEO of Smart Music Entertainment, Larry "Lak" Henderson, to discuss how he is educating youth using hip-hop music.

His new educational hip-hop CD entitled - Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, is currently on the Amazon best sellers list.

Join us as host Bennie S. Covington  learns more about how hip-hop music can assist in the learning process in ways he never imagined!
