Description of Services

Be Profound – Not Profane (A Hip Hop Rap on Social Youth Issues):
Rap is not a new phenomenon in the arts industry. Its mission to impart knowledge and information via oral tradition and satire originated in Africa and in Trinidad/Tobago, with the Calypso singer. The Calypso singer wrote and sang about how the government treated their constituents, about gossip and community residents, and other observations. This interactive workshop is designed for 7th and 8th graders, and will enhance their reading and writing skills.

The presenter will:

  • Introduce a historical insight into the Trinidad/Tobago culture
  • Open a venue for participants to speak on their love of rap creation
  • Help participants understand how the past and present are connected
  • Demonstrate with participants how rap can be integrated into academic curriculums in social studies, music, and literary arts
Indicators of progress include verbal feedback throughout the workshop and consistent, active participation during the session.

The presenter will assess participants with an evaluation sheet, which participants will receive and complete before the workshop is finished, and by observing group collaboration.
