Chasing Content – The Best of Last December

It’s the first of the month. Time for another edition of Chasing Content, that blog feature where we look back at what was happening last year at this time.

You can read all of the posts from last December. . .

or just these favourites. . .

Personification in Rap Music – Hip-hop has the power to make things come alive. In this special edition of Know Your History, we explore personification in hip-hop. This half hour radio documentary is available as a free podcast to download or stream. You can also read the transcript. Enjoy!

The Bridge Wars – One of hip-hop’s most famous battles is explored in this episode for you to download, stream, or read. Last year, I got a little behind in transcribing the shows and that’s why three of them show up in the December posts.

Tell Her She’s Beautiful – How do you tell people they are beautiful? Do people want to hear it? I still struggle with this one. It’s a great post though and definitely worth a read. I loved to here your thoughts as well. Please click through and leave a comment. Thanks!

Take it Down or Cover it Up. Please! – This is one of my biggest pet-peeves.

Scaredy Squirrel Drama Lesson – My students really loved this one last year. I’d almost forgotten about it. Perhaps it’s time to break out this great picture book and try it again.

Putting Graffiti in Its Place – There are sections of town where I think graffiti is completely acceptable. What do you think?

Thanks for Chasing Content with me!
