Reviews - What do customers think about Flocabulary: The Hip-Hop Approach to U.S. History (Flocabulary Study Guides)?

so much fun  Dec 28, 2007
I found this while searching for clean, authentic hip-hop for my first grader. He loves the beat but radio lyrics are too risque and "kid" hip hop is a little too sugary. This sounds like the radio but has totally clean lyrics, that are educational to boot. Not that I'd consider it an alternative to school - but he does enjoy following along in the book and reading the historical support material, so who can complain.

I get a kick out of some of the lines myself, so we both enjoy listening. I also like that it gives a deeper perspective on much of American history. Overall a great product.
Great Teaching Tool  Apr 13, 2007
Not since "School House Rocks" has a teaching tool been so useful in reaching history students across America. As a teacher, I have used the "Hip-Hop Approach to U.S. History" with great success and educational outcomes. The CD is a great supplement to the history curriculum, with a different perspective of historical events that is not usually found in our current history books. Catchy, historically critical, and very easy to use, this book and CD will enhance any student's insight into U.S. history. Listen to O.D.W.M. to get a good sense of what Flocabulary is all about.
Great Tool  Jan 20, 2007
What a great tool. While I don't expect the songs to ever make it to the American Top 40 they are adequate and have a good beat. They have actually made it fun (or dare I say easy) to learn history!
