Introductory rap point

During this week, rappers send a short introductory message about their class and provide information about their school and its location. This information would include an Acknowledgment of Country and the name of the Aboriginal Land on which the school stands. You might also include the name of a local Aboriginal Elder and brief information about the cultural backgrounds of students, including the People and Lands of any Aboriginal students. The Planning & programming activities will help you with this.

After reading other schools’ introductions, rappers locate schools on their Rap map

During this week rappers have time to read and enjoy the texts in My People, My place, which is the focus of Rap point 1 next week.

Post your class introduction to the rap blog once your teacher has approved the final message. Your class might wish to respond to the introductions from other rappers via the rap blog.

Posting responses:

  • prepare the response with the class
  • student/s (Rap Rep) may word process the response, edit and save
  • teacher facilitates the student/s use of the word processor and blogging procedures to post the response to Introductory rap point once the teacher has approved the final text.
