The Week In Rap
The Week In Rap is a nice addition to any class that looks at current events on a regular basis. Produced each week by Flocabulary, it is available widely via Vimeo. You can also download the video (.WMV file) from their web site to play it straight from your desktop through Windows Media Player. Their web site also has a transcript of the lyrics (...word!), and you can sign up to have weekly reminders emailed to you when each new episode is available.
While I would personally prefer to curl up with my old Rolling Stones or Bob Seger albums, kids today might prefer something a little more up-to-date to help them learn in the classroom. Sometimes that old adage, "If ya' can't beat 'em, join 'em" holds true. Many thanks to www.freetech4teachers.com for the link!
