Fresh Ed: A Field Guide to Culturally Responsive Pedagogy

The Fresh Ed Field Guide is a standards- based curriculum that acknowledges and capitalizes on young peoples’ love of music by reframing the way content is presented. In other words, Fresh Ed uses Hip Hop Music and youth culture to make ELA and social studies content accessible to middle school students who otherwise might find it foreign or irrelevant.
