Announcing the creation of THE HIP HOP EDUCATION GUIDEBOOK: VOLUME 2

check out this release from the hip hop association:

"Due to overwhelming demand for effective Hip-Hop education resources H2Ed published the first ever Hip-Hop Education Guidebook: Volume One in February 2007. The guidebook features interdisciplinary standards-referenced lesson plans written for and by teachers across the U.S. The media is taking notice of this positive resource for educators.

The guidebook has been featured in: Black Issues Book Review, El Diario, Vibe, All Hip Hop, Teaching Tolerance, WBAI, WNYC, Latination Television, and Rethinking Schools. Educators from New York University to the University of Wisconsin, Madison and from Bank Street College of Education to Teach for America are all embracing it as an innovative resource. All proceeds from the Hip-Hop Education Guidebook have been donated to the Hip-Hop Association education initiative.

The positive response from educators and media enforces the need to continue publishing Hip-Hop education resources. H2Ed is pleased to announce its call for submissions for the Hip-Hop Education Guidebook: Volume 2. We encourage creative lesson plans in “non-traditional” Hip-Hop education subjects, such as math, science, ESL/ELA, social justice, etc. In the spirit of youth-culture-fusion we welcome submissions that incorporate other musical forms such as dance-hall, reggae, punk, emo, etc.

If your submission is selected you will be published in the Hip-Hop Education Guidebook: Volume 2. You may receive a wide range of media coverage, interview opportunities, and international exposure. In addition, you may be eligible for wholesale guidebook orders. Lessons we are unable to use for Volume 2 may be shared on our Hip-Hop education resources website."

types of submissions:
-lesson plan
-reflection essay
