Title: Hip-hop as a Teaching Tool
As an English teacher in the public school system, it is imperative that I develop innovative ways to teach timeless concepts and skills.  With the increased teacher accountability tied to state and national norms and achievement tests, the K-12 education sector is scrambling for strategies to use in order to reach our inner city youth.  It is my philosophy, however, that we use everyday mediums in order to teach complex concepts.  It is through the analysis of several elements of hip-hop including MC-ing and Graffiti writing that we can teach our underserved students how to access, understand, and formulate knowledge of our world.

·         Presenter:  Bess Bolton
Title:  Green Technology is the Newest Hustle
This presentation will show how youth started Hip Hop as a hustle; unknown, different, radical, etc. and how it evolved and is still a hustle today and profitable. Green technology is similar with green cars, wind turbines, etc. and will need the youth to recognize that there knowledge about this newest hustle could be quite profitable for the hip hop community.

·         Presenter:  Javier Sanchez
Title:  Guard My Heart
Spoken Word piece with an accompanying slide show.

·         Presenter:  Mexie Wilson
Title: The 5th Element – Doin the Knowledge
Most people are aware of the 4 elements in Hip Hop, but many don't know about the 5th Element - Doin The Knowledge. I will explain the meaning of the 5th element and how I personally practice and participate in the element through Hip Hop Activism.
