SILTA Idea #1: Rap the Environment

Rap = Literary art form; Throw in some Shakespeare for rhyming; Fluid nature of language

Music = Cultural roots; African-American history

Sociology = Music as spiritual release

Environment = Where you locally live and breathe

Geography = Micro and macro patterns; live local, think global (GPS)

Science = Weather; What isn’t chemistry? (math)

Technology = Film it on phones from multiple angles; upload footage to dropbox; edit on your phone.
