Description

Have you ever wanted to infuse your teaching with one of your passions that is not commonly associated with information literacy? More specifically, have you ever been curious about including hip-hop themes, metaphors, or other hip-hop-related content in your IL instruction? In this panel discussion grounded in critical pedagogy, social justice discourse, and the politics of including hip-hop in the college classroom, attendees will hear the strategies and experiences of four instruction librarians with varied hip-hop familiarity, from novice to fan to emcee. Panelists will describe teaching research concepts through hip-hop metaphors, teaching library databases through interpreting/annotating rap lyrics, and teaching critical approaches to copyright using hip-hop examples. The ultimate goal of this panel is to advocate engaging our passions in the classroom in ways that promote social justice, sustain our excitement to teach, and establish classroom environments in which students feel compelled to pursue their own curiosities.
