Have you ever heard of the book Hip Hop Poetry and the Classics? It is an excellent book that teaches the unit of poetry to hs students with the classics that we are required to teach as well as some of the more urban type of hip hop music that is poetic in nature. The students learn how to identify different types of poetry in both classics and hip hop songs. Also, you could use some of these ideas to dress up your bulletin board to get the kids interested. You could choose on Hip Hop person and one classic poet and place a work from each on the bulletin board and then have kids comment on how they are alike and different.
