Asheville Middle School

History of HIp-Hop with 7th grade and artist/musicians, Melody and SIYAH  

Students worked with Melody and SIYAH to study the history of Hip-Hop's elements: dance, rap, graffiti and created a healing folder using graffiti and pictures. They sharpened writing and speaking skills by writing an original verse that contributed to a class composition based on their perspective, including a self-praise poem.

Students also read this verse collectively as a contribution to The Listening Project Live on February 28th at UNCA Lipinsky Auditorium.
