Edmodo Rap CCR

As of late, we have been blessed with a lot of media coverage. One question that starts most interviews is, “How did Common Core Rap begin?” If you’ve followed us from the beginning, you likely know the answer. For those of you that have recently discovered us, here is a quick history. I was asked to write a rap to introduce students to Edmodo, a classroom social media site that allows teachers and students to communicate, share ideas, post homework, and more in a safe, secure environment. Immediately, the song received a lot of praise from teachers and Edmodo staff. One staffer even asked to use the rap to introduce Edmodo at a conference! The students loved the Edmodo rap and the idea for Common Core Rap was born. 17 videos later, we are thrilled to know our videos are used all across the country and on several continents! Listen to how it all began :)
