Description
THE GOAL:
To make the academic study of poetry accessible relevant, comprehensible and enjoyable to students in contemporary, multicultural classrooms.

THE METHODOLOGY:
To analyze the poetry of Hip-Hop and compare its motifs, themes, and general poetic devices (such as alliteration, rhyme scheme, figurative language, etc. ..) to the "classic" poems traditionally studied (by writers such as Frost Dickinson, Keats, etc...) in order to teach the core elements of the poetic craft in an appealing, relevant, thorough and accessible manner.

THE AIM:
To dispel preconceived notions about poetry for students and educators alike.
