In this lesson, students will demonstrate an understanding of two historical figures and their opposing ideologies by writing their own “Epic Rap Battles of History.” They will also exercise their debate and persuasive writing skills.
Some media may contain mature content. Discretion is advised when viewing with students.
If your students are not already familiar with the YouTube sensation "Epic Rap Battles of History," give them some time to explore the channel. Have them focus on the three videos above as they feature political and historical figures (as opposed to others that feature Mario and Darth Vader).
