How I Use It
I show the Week in Rap each week to more Journalism class. My students look forward to watching each week. It's a quick overview of major events happening in the world. Usually I just show my students the weekly rap because a lot of the activities are too simplistic for them. I am, however, going to try using the Key Terms and Q&A activities this week and will provide an update.
My Take
I love Flocabulary. It would be better if it were free, but I'll continue to pay for it because my students enjoy it so much. I think a lot of the more simple activities, such as the cloze activity, would be great for EL's and Students with Disabilities.
