6.1.13 … Pride and Prejudice rap … not …

Pride and Prejudice , literature, rap, The Bennet Sisters:  How to ruin a classic … LOL.

3) Jane Austen rap, and other torturous things teachers make highschool students do thinking that it will be “fun” and “cool” and “hip”.  It’s like all literature teachers go off to some conference where they come up with new, fresh ideas for assessments.  News flash.  Introducing students to Pride and Prejudice by getting them to rap about it, poorly, is not a good idea.  Neither is asking them to keep a vlog pretending they are from the era.  You can see the results of such ideas via the youtube videos here, here and here.  My ears are bleeding.  And I don’t even mind rap music.  Seen any other shockers?  Post them up.
