At the same time, I do not “expose my children” to rap, and my students all know where I stand on modern culture in general. Timothy made this video as a tribute to the HistoryAtOurHouse program. He decided on the form and style, and I don’t have any problem with it. Since rap music is a style that a lot of kids like, I think that using that medium to promote historical education is quite brilliant on his part.
